Description: Focus on Flux-cored Arc Welding (FCAW) using the FCAW-G, and FCAW-S processes. Welding will be in the flat, horizontal, vertical, and overhead positions. Also covered: AWS typical joint designs using the fillet, lap, and T-joint, with an emphasis on proper use and care of equipment and safety procedures.

Prerequisites: Specialization #1- WLD 121, 122, 222, 225, or instructor consent.

Corequisites: None

Recommendations: None

Measurable Student Learning Outcomes
