2015 Stamp Plan Year
Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW) – Plate
This 8-hour course will expose the participant to Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW). Welding in flat, horizontal, vertical and overhead applications will be available to the participant with particular emphasis being placed on stick or SMAW in the vertical position using 3/8″ structural plate.
The participant will spend approximately 3 hours in the classroom and 5 hours in the weld shop and will perform welding operations in several positions. Particular emphasis will be placed on electrode selection, equipment setup, electrode position and manipulation and various weld discontinuities. Each participant will be allowed to practice and weld in their position where they and the Instructor feel the most need is using 3/8″ structural plate.
