Students will learn the basics of welding safety, including properly using the equipment and techniques to minimize the risk of injury. The knowledge gained in this course will provide a solid foundation for the welder’s success in the workplace. In addition, by learning the safety systems for protection, electrical safety, and ventilation, PTTI students will gain the skills valuable to an employer.
Introduction To Welding
Students will learn the basic theory and application for the practice of welding. The course is designed for students to study mathematics used in the shop. They will know and understand key terminology. They will perform basic experiments as they begin a foundation for welding. It will also reinforce the knowledge gained from the safety course before beginning shop applications and other vital operations.
Shielded Metal Arc Welding (STICK)
This course will establish the basics of Stick Welding to set a foundation for PTTI students. Next, this will prepare them for the Stick Welding II advanced course. In this course, students will continue to demonstrate the safety practices established in course WTT001 to ensure practical learning and safety in the process. In addition, students of Stick Welding I will learn electrical measurement and SMA welding arc heating, etc., to ensure a smooth application once moving on to course WTT0006 Stick II.
Metal Inert Gas Arc (MIG)
This course builds welding and process versatility and teaches students to experiment and gain expertise in the process of Plasma Cutting and Beveling. Acquiring strengths in these skills will help students to succeed in their welding careers. Additionally, in this course, students will become proficient in the tools necessary to perform and complete this process, along with safety, compressions, and the input of heat and gas cables.
Tungsten Inert Gas Welding (TIG)
Students will learn the basics of TIG welding and advance to in-shop applications of those skill sets to become proficient TIG welders in this course. They will apply theory and practice to ensure the TIG welds are professional and acceptable for the workplace. The students will learn appropriate setup and operations, types of electrodes, GTA current, pre-flow, and post-flow, shielding gas, arc welding, and tungsten contamination.
Blueprint reading is an essential piece to becoming a professional welder. Students will learn how to accurately read and interpret a blueprint to achieve their assigned tasks properly. In addition, students will apply shop math to assess drawing scales and dimensions. PTTI students will also learn computer-aided drawing and special views, essential skills needed for becoming a proficient blueprint reader.
Plasma Cutting and Joint
This course builds welding and process versatility and teaches students to experiment and gain expertise in the process of Plasma Cutting and Beveling. Acquiring strengths in these skills will help students to succeed in their welding careers. Additionally, in this course, students will become proficient in the tools necessary to perform and complete this process and safety, compressions, the input of heat and gas cables.
