Grade: 10, 11, 12 — Credits: 2
Certified Welding 1 is a course for students with little or no welding experience. Students will explore the field of welding, employment opportunities, workplace protocols and the physics of welds. Students will be required to complete research reports, and textbook study followed by industry standard testing. Weekly students will research and submit vocabulary (term of the week) acquisition papers. Students will weld on a plate at industry standard positions, and submit those weld coupons for non-destructive testing. The course will include weekly visual tests (NDT-VT) and weld evaluations; acceptance and scoring will be based on industry standard criteria. Students will keep records and daily logs on welding progress. To be successful, students need a good foundation in math, science and literacy. Approved work clothes and shoes are a requirement.
