The purpose of this course is to introduce the basic requirements involved in metal-arc welding operations and the inert gas welding processes, and maintenance of welding equipment.
The scope of this course consists of describing the classification of electrodes and their intended uses; describing automotive welding processes, materials and identification processes; describing the methods of destructive and nondestructive testing of welds and troubleshooting procedures; describing the type and techniques of joint design; and describing the theory, principles, and procedures of welding armor plate.
The course also consists of the inert gas welding principles, equipment, and safety precautions; the gas metal-welding principles operations, and equipment nomenclature; and the procedures for troubleshooting and repairing welding equipment.
This course is based on welding used by the military on heavy equipment.
This course is part of our Welding series.
