WLDG1360 Flux Cored Arc Welding II

Students will learn how to produce single-V-groove butt joint welds using gas-shielded and self-shielded tubular electrode wire. Students will also produce fillet weld lap joints and single-V-groove butt joints with metal-cored wire and single-V-groove welds in butt joints on pipe. Destructive tests will be performed on selected welds. Students will have the option to further develop their knowledge and skills to prepare for the flux-cored Welder Qualification Test. This course will cover the characteristics of hazardous wastes and its safe handling, storage, and disposal.
