Major Goals of Metal Fabrication & Welding
- Develop SAFE hand and power tool practices.
- Communicate and work effectively as a team.
- Demonstrate a working knowledge of materials, tools, and processes that are used in the metal trades/fabrication industry.
- Expose students to the numerous pathways relevant to the metal trades. Such as, welding, Heating Ventilation & air Conditioning (HVAC), roofing, siding, cladding, pipe fitting, plumbing, and custom fabrication.
- Develop the work ethic and responsibility required for employment within the industry.
Metal Fabrication & Welding 10 (5 credits)
This introductory course is designed to provide students with the fundamental skills necessary to fabricate and weld metal products safely and efficiently using various processes commonly used in industry.
Modules of Study
Students will be completing five of the following modules of study at the Introductory level. Each individual module completed is equivalent to one credit.
FAB1010: FABRICATION TOOLS AND MATERIALS (prerequisite NONE)
FAB1040: OXYACETYLENE WELDING (prerequisite FAB1010)
FAB1050: BASIC ELECTRIC WELDING (prerequisite FAB1010)
FAB1048: SEMI AUTOMATED/ AUTOMATED WELDING (prerequisite FAB1010)
FAB1090: SHEET FABRICATION 1 (prerequisite FAB1010)
Metal Fabrication & Welding 20 (5 Credits)
This course builds upon the skill sets gained in Welding 10 with an emphasis on welding in multiple positions (1F, 1G, 2F, 2G, 3F, 3G) with SMAW, FCAW, and GMAW. Students will further their knowledge and understanding of multiple welding processes. To register in this course, students MUST have completed Welding 10.
