This class is designed to advance the student's skills in the Gas Tungsten Arc (TIG) process. Emphasis will be placed on the student's ability to prepare material and perform welding of flat, horizontal and vertical fillet welds and flat groove welds in carbon steel, stainless steel and aluminum. Practice is geared towards AWS D17.1 Fusion Welding for Aerospace Application. Upon successful completion of the course, student will receive an Earlbeck Certificate of Completion. Passing the certification tests qualifies the student to AWS D17.1 code for carbon steel, stainless steel and aluminum.
Exclusive offer for Intermediate and Advanced SMAW and Intermediate GMAW Students! Upgrade to an ATF Test for only $275.00 (a $680.00 value!) An ATF certification test offers the same qualification as the standard AWS or ASME test you will be administered in class, but this certification places the welder in the AWS public database which can be accessed by anyone looking for a certified welder. What this also means is that your certification would be valid for any potential employer. The net benefit to the welder is that he/she is more marketable in the workplace because a prospective employer would not be required to have you tested again for the same qualification/certification. For additional details, speak with your instructor.
Upon completion, the student should be able to:
Perform Safety inspection of equipment and accessories
Set up for GTAW operation on carbon steel, aluminum and stainless steel
Adjust machine to correct polarity and amperage
Make horizontal fillet welds on carbon steel
Make flat & vertical groove welds on carbon steel
Make horizontal and vertical fillet welds on stainless steel
Make flat & vertical groove welds on stainless steel
Make horizontal and vertical fillet welds on aluminum
Make flat & vertical groove welds on aluminum
Perform AWS D17.1 welder certification plates in all three materials in the vertical position.
Fundamentals of Welding
Each student must outfit themselves in work boots, jeans or heavy work pants and long sleeve flame retardant shirt. They must also bring safety glasses and their own welding gear. (Helmet, gloves, jacket, etc.)
