This course introduces students to advanced American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), American Petroleum Industry (API), and American Welding Society (AWS) pipe welding standards in the vertical and overhead positions using the SMAW process on steel pipe. Students will choose one of these three standards to develop their welding skills and to prepare them for Certification of Qualification to the respective code. At the conclusion of this course, students take a 6G pass/fail welder qualification test using the Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW) process. Laboratory sessions will provide hands-on time to develop skills to produce quality weldments on pipe. The course covers functions and specific uses of manual welding equipment, various SMAW welding techniques, prepping and fitting of pipe coupons, and welding certification requirements.
