In this basic welding class, students are introduced to four welding processes: oxy-fuel welding (OFW), gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW), shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) and gas metal arc welding (GMAW). One cutting process is also explored: oxy-fuel cutting (OFC). Students will learn welding vocabulary, welding theory, safe handling practices and set-up of all related welding equipment. Students will weld using each process on ferrous or non-ferrous materials that are commonly used in industries such as automotive, manufacturing, structural and artistic sculpture work.
