Description: Introductory course with a focus on the fundamentals and safety related to the Oxyfuel, Plasma Arc, and Carbon Arc cutting processes. Also included are the welding processes of Shielded Metal Arc, Gas Metal Arc, and Flux-cored Arc welding. The course is designed for the beginner and other CTE majors that required a basic knowledge of welding.

Prerequisites: None

Corequisites: None

Recommendations: Basic knowledge of measuring tools.

Measurable Student Learning Outcomes
1. (Application Level) Explain and demonstrate safety requirements related to the Oxyfuel, plasma, and carbon arc cutting processes, and the Shielded Metal, Gas Metal, and Flux-cored Arc welding processes. (CSLO #2, 3)

2. (Evaluation Level) Analyze and evaluate potential safety-related accidents per the AWS Z49.1. (CSLO #2)

3. (Application Level) Identify and demonstrate the use of various types of Oxyfuel and plasma cutting equipment, engine driven welding machines, and multi-process digital welding equipment. (CSLO #2, 3)

4. (Application Level) Explain and demonstrate two ways of striking an arc, and developing proper technique when using the Gas Metal Arc and Shielded Metal Arc welding processes. (CSLO #2, 3)

5. (Application Level) Identify and demonstrate the most common weld joints and types of welds. This will include AWS typical fillet, lap, and tee joints. (CSLO #2)

6. (Application Level) Demonstrate and explain the Gas Metal Arc welding transfer modes. (CSLO #2, 3)

7. (Evaluation Level) Evaluate and explain the various types of weld discontinuities and how they can affect the strength of a weldment. (CSLO #2, 3)
