Descriptions and credit recommendations for all evaluated learning experiences

Location:
635 Avenue of the Americas, New York, NY.
Length:
Course 1: 120 hours (4 weeks); includes approximately 87 hours of supervised shop experience. Course 2: 120 hours (4 weeks); includes approximately 87 hours of supervised shop experience.
Dates:
December 1994 - March 2003.
Objectives:
Course 1: Describe procedures for personal safety, burn prevention, fire prevention, and safe handling and use of oxy-acetylene equipment; identify metals by spark test, magnetic test, physical appearance and physical weight; describe American Welding Society classification of mild steel rods; set up welding equipment and make necessary flame adjustments to produce fillet welds on Tee, Lap and Butt joints in the flat and horizontal positions with and without the use of a filler metal; perform brazing in the flat and horizontal positions on Tee and Corner joints; perform manual and automatic flame cutting; describe the process of identifying quality welds. Course 2: Use AC, AC/DC, and transformer/rectifier AC/DC welding machines to produce multi-pass fillet welds on a Tee joint in all positions (Vertical, Overhead, Flat, and Horizontal) using E-6011 and E-6013 electrodes; identify types of joints, types of welding machines, the currents they produce, and determine the difference between reverse and straight polarity; use a pedestal grinder, chipping hammer, wire brush and pliers, and personal safety equipment.
