Course Description

The Welding profession requires a good working knowledge of print and math concepts using whole numbers, fractions, decimals and the metric system in conjunction with prints. To accurately layout and fabricate parts the welder will need basic knowledge of print lines, dimensions, notes, and welding symbols. In many instances the welder will be required to calculate the weight and cost of material to fabricate a tank then calculate the capacity, which may be needed in cubic feet, gallons or liters. Written and Fundamental tests will be done in accordance with the American Welding Society (AWS) SENSE curriculum and code books.
