Missouri Apprentice Ready Pre Apprenticeship Program (PAP)
Manufacturing Welding - Fall 2021
Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) "MIG" and Flux Core Arc Welding (FCAW)

Course Overview

Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) and Flux Core Arc Welding (FCAW)  is the most common industrial welding process and welds steel faster than other welding processes. Students of this course will be able to describe and demonstrate the GMAW and  FCAW processes.

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to describe the types of power sources, machine settings, and maintenance requirements for GMAW and  FCAW. Students will also be able to describe the types of filler wires, shielding gases, and process applications.

Those who successfully complete this course will be able to demonstrate welding on various thicknesses of mild steel using conventional GMAW and  FCAW power sources in the shop component of the course. 

Safety is extremely important in our training. All welding students are required to wear long pants and closed toed shoes or boots (steel toed highly recommended), and must adhere to all safety requirements.

 

After school training course meets Tuesdays from 330pm-630pm

September 7, 14, 21, 28, and October 5
