Welding II

Prerequisites: IT 71 (Welding I)


Intermediate welding skills are introduced in this course with an emphasis on MIG (wire) and TIG welding techniques. Students will be expected to know and understand basic welding techniques including but not limited to: Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW), Oxy-Fuel Cutting (OFC), Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) before entering this course. Students will also learn welding blueprint reading and employ-ability skills.


Welding two also allows students the possibility of getting a welding certification. A welding certification is a test that the welder completes all by themselves. The test requires that the welder demonstrates sufficient skill in a welding process. To complete the test, the weld will weld two plates of metal together, cut them into strips, and bend those strips to test the strength of the weld. This is a very challenging thing to accomplish, and it comes with great rewards. Getting your welding certification allows you better employment opportunities. Along with the chance to get a welding certification, welding 2 students must also demonstrate their knowledge about lab safety, along with their knowledge of the technical side of welding. At the end of the year the students will take a state recognized written test, and if students are able to pass this test, they will be awarded not only a CTE Completion stamp on their diploma, but also a state recognized CTE course completer award.
