Engineering practitioners who design and specify steel structures need a practical understanding of steel materials including knowing the processes and practices of welding, cutting and forming, and weld testing and quality control. This knowledge is essential if fabricated steel structures are to be economical, practicable and fit for purpose.
Unfortunately few professionals have the opportunity to gain substantial exposure to fabrication workshop or testing activities and expand their practical understanding.
This course aims to address the gap, combining a broad scope of background information with hands-on practical experience.
On completion you will have gained an:
Course consists of 3 components – basic theoretical learning of steel and welding; hands on workshop time, and guest speakers.
Theory Topics (indicative only):
Of the total 27 hours of course time, approximately 18 hours will be spent in the workshop, using equipment and learning basic welding techniques. Teachers also create situations for difficult design welds, allowing firsthand experience at overhead welding, tight place welding or non-standard welding.
Please note: Content is introductory level, assuming no or limited experience in metal fabrication. Some content may already be known to participants, however, it is included as a refresher prior to physically working with steel.
Participants successfully completing the course will receive 2 TAFE competencies including 'Perform routine gas metal arc welding' and 'Perform routine manual metal arc welding'.
Price includes personal copy of reference materials and purchase of personal welding safety equipment.
