GMAW (Gas Metal Arc Welding)

GMAW (Gas Metal Arc Welding)

Course Outline

This course provides a comprehensive introduction to the Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) process, also known as MIG (Metal Inert Gas) welding. Students will learn about welding safety, as well as how to perform quality fillet and groove welds using GMAW. The course also covers welding symbols, and blueprint reading, as well as an introduction to oxy-acetylene and plasma cutting. In addition, students will receive training in basic air carbon arc gouging. By the end of the course, students will have a solid foundation in GMAW and will be well-prepared to start a career in G.M.A.W Welding.

  • Welding safety: Students will have a thorough understanding of the safety precautions and procedures that are necessary when working with GMAW.
  • Quality fillet and groove welds: Students will have the skills and knowledge to perform high-quality fillet and groove welds using GMAW.
  • Basic trade math: Students will understand basic math concepts and calculations that are relevant to welding, including how to measure and cut materials to size.
  • Welding symbols and blueprint reading: Students will be able to interpret welding symbols and read blueprints, which are essential skills for any welder.
  • Oxy-acetylene and plasma cutting: Students will have an introduction to oxy-acetylene and plasma cutting, which are additional welding processes that may be used in some industries.
  • Air carbon arc gouging: Students will be able to use air carbon arc gouging to remove excess material from welds or to create grooves in metal.
  • Striking an arc progressing to make bead welds
  • Welding in two positions, maximum for G.M.A.W (Flat and Horizontal).
  • Two position testing by CWB for G.M.A.W (Flat and Horizontal)
