Welding Gas and Electric – Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) Ferrous and Non-Ferrous Metals. Course includes an overview of safety, GTAW equipment ,shielding gases, filler metals, joint design, welding symbols, tooling and testing, NDT inspection. Provides detailed instruction in techniques for manually welding a variety ferrous and nonferrous metals.
Lecture component – 35 (maximum)
Laboratory Component – 20 (maximum) ( Do to Lab space)
Students must complete at least 70% of the courses required for the Certificate of Accomplishment in Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) which must be completed at Los Angeles Trade-Technical College (LATTC)
Students enrolling in this program should be able to commit to full-time student status, which is approximately 24 hours per week. This time commitment is necessary to allow for hands-on training with the laboratory applications used during the course of instruction.
Upon completion student will:
Perform trade calculations related to welding, construction, and maintenance work
Demonstrates sustainable industry principles and practices in the Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW)Process on Ferrous and Non- Ferrous metals
Student will have the knowledge, aptitude, and skills necessary for employment in welding
18 to 25
According to the United States Department of Labor, the demand for students with Gas and Electric Welding skills will continue to increase in the future. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) states that Gas and Electric Welding related jobs are among the fastest-growing new or emerging fields in the United States. The new Certificate of Achievement in Gas and Electric Welding Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) Ferrous and Non-Ferrous Metals will expand the program, for students looking to update or upgrade their welding skills and enhance their marketability in the workforce, through the American Welding Society (AWS) standards with the completion of 18-semesterunits. Students may choose to continue their education to pursue a Certificate of Completion or an A.S. degree in Gas and Electrical Welding.
