Vertical Shielded Metal Arc Welding WELD 1060

4 Credits
(Prerequisite: WELD 1040) Introduces the major theory, safety practices, and techniques required for shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) in the vertical position. Qualification tests, vertical position, are used in the evaluation of student progress toward making industrial standard welds. Topics include: vertical SMAW safety and health practices, selection and applications of electrodes for vertical SMAW, vertical SMAW joints, and vertical SMAW to specification.  A $20 fee is associated with this course due to the increased cost of welding rods and steel.
