Program description

The objective of the Production Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) program is to provide the student with a combination of theory and hands-on training sufficient to prepare them to obtain employment and succeed as a production welder in a manufacturing environment. The program will be comprised of four courses totalling 195 hours of classroom and practical instruction. The focus of this vocational program will be welding skills development using the GMAW-SC and GMAW-SP processes on different thicknesses of carbon steel in a variety of positions. In addition to GMAW weld practical skills students will learn engineered drawings (including weld symbols), and GMAW weld theory. They will also complete a Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB) weld skills test in the flat position and, if successful, may earn a CWB credential.
