SMAW PIPE WELDING (SMAW-PIPE)
This course will instruct students in welding safety of the Shield Metal Arc Welding process (SMAW-Pipe), proper techniques and electrode selection for welding pipe in various welding positions (1G,2G,5G,6G) to meet ASME welding code. Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to perform general entry level production and maintenance welding in fabrication shop, machine shop, oilfield, pipeline, petrochemical, power plant or refineries on mild steel, stainless steel and carbon steel. This course contains 24 hours of lecture and 72 hours of lab, which totals 96 clock hours. This course will last 6 weeks. In order to complete course student must pass a skills test. At the completion of the course each student will receive a certificate of completion.
