This course has been designed to instruct learners in safety, Tungsten Inert Gas (GTAW) and Shielded Metal Arc Welding process (SMAW-Stick) of welding pipe to meet international welding standards.
To take individuals who are already structural welders (AWS D1.1 certificate holders) and teach them how to weld pipe.
Duration of training:
The recommended period of time is 320 hours instructional training. This represents the average time required to gain the expected skills. The time needed may vary according to the capability of the student. Including one final assessment.
This Guideline applies mainly to carbon steel pipe in metal ER 70S-6 wire and electrode 7018-1.
Learners will be able to:
Perform safe welding according to the (p) WPS (or welding instruction)
Assemble and tack the joint
Take the necessary precautions to avoid distortion prior to, during and after welding
Follow the welding symbols and the (p)WPS (related to the proposed weld)
Select the appropriate type of consumable and the desired size according to the (p)WPS (or welding instruction).
Where appropriate, perform simple visual and destructive tests on the welds made.
