STRUCTURAL ALL-POSITION PLATE CERTIFICATION LAB    $ 595

FOUR DAYS

 

This course is designed specifically for American Welding Society Structural Welding Certification preparation, for those individuals seeking job opportunities requiring proof of skills upon interview.  Welding skills in “out of position” shielded metal arc using the E7018 Low Hydrogen Welding Electrode will be sharpened.  Certification spec. coupons will be welded together in both vertical and overhead weld positions.  After completion students will cut samples from their plates and perform a “bend test”.  Plates that fall short of this criteria will fail in the form of a visual fracture within the specimen.  Individuals will have many opportunities to improve their skills.  Those exhibiting the ability to weld to AWS D1.1 specifications will receive stamped verification by our Certified Welding Inspector as to their competence.  All welding equipment will be supplied.  Students should wear cotton clothing, work boots, and bring a welding, or baseball cap.  Four days, two weekends.  
(Four days, two weekends) Limited to 8 participants.
