Metals Technology - Welding Career Pathway Courses Offered

Occupational Safety and Fundamentals - This course is the foundational course that prepares students for a pursuit of any career in the field of construction. It prepares the student for the basic knowledge to function safely on or around a construction site and in the industry in general. This course explains the safety obligations of workers, supervisors, and managers to ensure a safe workplace. Course content discusses the causes and results of accidents and the dangers of rationalizing risks. It includes the basic content of OSHA 10-hour safety standards. It also includes the basic knowledge and skills needed in the following areas: construction math, hand and power tools used in the field, general blueprints, and basics of rigging safety.

Introduction to Metals - Introduction to Metals is designed to acquaint participants with the three major technical occupations (welding, sheet metal, and machining) that are available in the metal forming, manufacturing, and metals/construction industries. The various activities equip high school students with the skills needed to select a metal industry occupation, enter the work force, and continue to advance in one of these specialized metals occupations. Minimum performance requirements for this course are based on successful student completion according to the National Center for Construction Education and Research Center (NCCER) Occupation Standards and the National Institute for Metalforming Skills (NIMS) standards. Students who successfully complete the course in accordance with NCCER standards are eligible for registration with the NCCER National Craft Worker Registry or obtain NIMS credentials.

Welding 1 - This course is designed to provide students with the basic knowledge and safe operating skills needed to demonstrate proper set of equipment in oxyfuel and shielded metal arc welding (SMAW). In oxy-fuel area of study students will create accurate cuts and perform washing and gouging procedures. Students will learn to critique their work pieces by welding codes, identifying imperfections, common test methods, and evaluate setups to determine proper setup of work and equipment. In SMAW students will learn and model proper safety and learn to make judgment calls in selection of electrodes and metal preparation to create beads and fillet welds using various rods.

Welding 2 - This course is designed to provide students with the basic knowledge and safe operating skills required to perform industry entry-level skills in the use of shielded metal arc welding equipment (SMAW) and an introduction to gas metal arc welding (GMAW) setup and operations. In welding, students will produce welds using 6010 and 7018 electrodes in the flat (1F), horizontal (2F), and vertical (3F) fillet welds. Minimum performance requirements for this course are based on successful student completion according to the American Welding Society (AWS) and the National Center for Construction Education and Research Center (NCCER) Occupation Standards. Students who successfully complete the course in accordance with NCCER standards are eligible for registration with the NCCER National Craft Worker Registry.
