Designed to instruct welders in welding safety and the Flux-Cored Arc Welding process (FCAW) for both Self-Shielded (Innershield®) and Gas-Shielded (Outershield® and UltraCore®) methods. The course lasts one week, involving approximately 30 hours of booth instruction, lecture and practice.
Learn fundamentals of FCAW Self-Shielded (Innershield®). Learn fundamentals of FCAW Gas-Shielded (Outershield®). Weld on 10 gauge through 1-inch thick material in all positions. Use a variety of electrodes, wire feeders and power sources. Typical joint designs used in construction and shipbuilding are welded, which consist of fillet, lap, groove and butt welds. Final weld tests are on 1-inch bevel plate vertical up with and without a backin bar.
