Safety, equipment components, nozzle set up, travel direction, torch angles, weave and stringer techniques will be stressed. Emphasis on perfecting basic skills learned in WLD 1210, 1211, and 1212 and working on repairing broken parts that -Must be salvaged. Joints are prepared and welded in accordance with AWS standards used in industry and construction. All position welds are accomplished on the appropriate plate and tests accomplished on the appropriate plate and tests will be given according to AWS criteria. AWS testing procedures will be performed and completed according to ANSI/AWS D1.1 Structural Steel Welding Code. Lecture, 1 hour; lab, 2 hours.
