Welders are an indispensable part of our society. Found in construction sites, ship yards, garages, engineering firms, and aviation manufacturing sites, they help build and repair many essential vehicles and products. Knowing how vital welding is gave Adam Britton the confidence to choose it as his new profession. We are extremely proud of Adam for graduating from our welding program and beginning the career of his dreams. 

What You Learn in a Welding Program

For each graduate of a program, we highlight three different courses. During the program, Adam took courses such as: SMAW Beads and Fillets, SMAW Open V-Groove Welds, and GMAW Plate.

In these courses, he learned about:

  • Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW) equipment and setup, maintenance, and minor repair; the various SMAW E6010 electrodes used by the industry; and the making of stringers, weaves, overlapping beads, and fillet welds in multiple positions with E6010 electrodes
  • advanced fundamentals of the Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW) process, such as passing AWS D1.1 code plate welding using open root joints
  • the basic fundamentals of the MIG Welding (GMAW) process, including wirefeed welding procedures, GMAW equipment identification, the filler metals and shielding gases used to perform GMAW, and the making of multiple pass fillet and V-groove welds on carbon steel plate in various positions
