Welding Course for Educators
The courses are designated for Professional Development of Welding Educators teaching secondary and post-secondary welding programs. The description of the training modules are listed as below:
- Module # 1. Welding Metallurgy
“Welding Metallurgy and Weldability of Commercial Alloys” course covers the concepts and fundamentals of atomic structure, grain structure, heat flow, phase transformations, welding metallurgy, and the weldability of ferrous and non-ferrous commercial alloys. Laboratory work consists of welding metallurgy investigation on the welded samples and weldability testing for specific applications.
- Module # 2 Joining and Cutting Processes
“ Joining and Cutting Processes” course covers the basics and principles of major joining and cutting processes. Advantages, disadvantages, equipment, consumables, techniques and variables for each process are discussed. Applications, criteria for consumable selection and how to establish process parameters are emphasized. Laboratory work involves equipment set up and operating of the welding and cutting equipment for specific applications.
- Module # 3 Design/ Assembly/ Robotic Welding
“Design for Welding, Fabrication, Assembly and Robotic Welding” course covers the concepts and fundamentals of the design for welding, fabrication, assembly and robotic welding. Laboratory work consists of case studies using standard design equations to determine the behavior of welded materials, part processing and optimization of fabrication, design considerations for work holding and manipulating equipment, and the programming and operating robots for GMAW welding.
- Module # 4 Weld Quality and Inspection, Welding Codes, Specifications and Safety
“Weld Quality and Inspection, Welding Codes, Specifications and Safety” course covers the of concepts and fundamentals,of the weld quality and inspection methods, welding codes, specifications and safety. Laboratory work consists of setting up and operating the instruments and equipment for identification and characterization of weld discontinuities and defects.
“Laser Welding” course covers the concepts and fundamentals of laser welding technology. Covers basic optics, laser welding systems and welding process optimization, and metallurgy of laser welds. Laboratory work consists of case studies that will involve optimization of laser welding equipment and identification and characterization of weld discontinuities and defects.
Course: Weld Quality and Inspection, Welding Codes, Specifications and Safety
The qualification and certification standards for entry level welders and welding technicians as established by The American Welding Society will be covered in all four modules.
