Practical Shop Welding 600 Hours
The Practical Shop Welding is shorter in length, and more specific in scope, than two of our other career-level Programs . The Practical Shop Welding is designed for incoming students with little or no welding experience who want to learn the basic techniques for depositing sound welds on carbon steel plate only (no pipe).
The Practical Shop Welding program consists of metal cutting using the Oxyacetylene torch and utilizing commonly employed, basic welding techniques in "Stick," "Mig," and "Flux Cored" to deposit sound welds on carbon steel plate. Shop projects include various joint designs in all positions on plate. In Shielded Metal Arc Welding ("Stick"), several electrode types and sizes are used on both AC and DC welding machines. Theory covers safety, proper machine setting adjustments, basic metal knowledge and welding symbols.

It is important to note that the two shorter Programs , Practical Shop Welding and General Shop Welding, ARE NOT eligible for financial aid. Students who intend to apply for financial aid should select either the Welder Fitter or Combination Welding Program.
