Welding For Dummies
by Steven Robert Farnsworth
Welding and metal fabrication is a three year course, beginning in the 10th grade and is designed to teach the basic skills of metal fabrication welding with the major emphasis on welding. Students will learn how to make layouts and blue prints, join metals by the use of S.M.A.W., T.G.A.W., and G.M.A.W. according to the layouts, and cut metal to a given shape and size using gas cutting and plasma burning equipment. Basic elements of the course may include, but are not limited to, the recognition of welding symbols, familiarity with melting and welding characteristics of various types of metals, making different welds from all angles, selecting the proper materials and equipment for the proper and safe operation, and blueprint reading. Students are required to take the National Occupational Competency Test (NOCTI) for welding. If passed, the student will receive a certificate from the State of Pennsylvania for entry level welding, enabling them to make a choice of areas for future employment. Students will also complete an OSHA certification and Forklift training. SkillsUSA membership is a mandatory for this program.
Respect, honesty, safety practices, and professionalism are always expected in this course which will prepare the students for a successful career in welding. The students will build their knowledge of welding mainly through hands-on learning, field experiences, and theory of welding concepts. Field experiences begin during the end of their second year in the program and are based on class performance, attendance, and behavior.
During welding theory students will have rigorous work assignments reading current literature in welding and demonstrating an understanding of the literature through class discussions, presentations, projects, and writings. Students will also be required to maintain, clean, and use welding equipment to perform certain performance based tasks throughout the three years of study.
Students are expected to work at a high-quality level and will be given the opportunity to rework any failing assignments after conferencing with the instructor. It is important that students be involved in all aspects of the learning experience. Students will be notified of the minimal number of times they must interact in each discussion and learning situation. However, I expect each student to be hard working, committed, and self-driven, as these habits are what make a successful career in the welding field.
