Upon completion of this course, the student should have developed the necessary skills to perform oxyacetylene welding, brazing, manual and mechanized oxyfuel cutting and complete OSHA safety training.
Course Objective: To be able to produce quality cuts on various thicknesses of mild steel using both manual and mechanized equipment, produce quality brazed joints on copper pipe, deposit quality fillet and groove welds on carbon steel, and complete OSHA10 safety training.
Course Content: This course provides an understanding of oxyacetylene welding, cutting and brazing, as well as OSHA training for the construction industry. It provides training to develop the skills needed to perform manual and mechanized cutting using the oxyacetylene process on ¼” to ½” thick mild steel. Training is also provided to develop the skills necessary to produce quality welds on 11-gauge fillet welds and butt joints as well as brazing 1-inch copper piping in various positions. Related information is included on weld quality, application of fuel gases and safety. Note: headphones are recommended for the OSHA training portion of the class.
Testing: To pass this course, the student is required to take two written tests. The student must also pass three flame cutting tests using manual and mechanized oxyacetylene cutting, as well as pass a guided bend test on a vertical up butt on 11-gauge material.
