SMAW (Stick) Plate Welding
Credential: SMAW, American Welding Society
This course is designed to enhance skills with the shielded metal arc (stick) welding process. Emphasis is placed on advancing manipulative skills with SMAW electrodes on varying joint geometry. Upon completion, students should be able to perform groove welds on carbon steel with prescribed electrodes in the at, horizontal, vertical, and overhead positions. This is an intermediate stick welding class. Course materials include the Modern Welding textbook (ISBN: 9781631266010) available at the BCCC bookstore (prices subject to change). A class welding kit list is available upon demand. Kits typically costs around $225 from ARC3 Gases and will be needed for the class. Students can also purchase the textbook and equipment list separately (equipment list available by request). Parallel to WLD-115AB

GMAW (MIG) FCAW/Plate
Credential: MIG, American Welding Society
This course introduces metal arc welding and flux core arc welding processes. Topics include equipment setup and fillet and groove welds with emphasis on application of GMAW and FCAW electrodes on carbon steel plate. Upon completion, students should be able to perform fillet welds on carbon steel with prescribed electrodes in the flat, horizontal, and overhead positions. Course materials include the Modern Welding textbook (ISBN: 9781605257952) available at the BCCC bookstore (prices subject to change). A class welding kit list is available upon demand.
