Introduction to Welding
INTRO 101

Introduction to Welding

INTRO 101

Designed to instruct welders in welding safety and welding techniques utilizing various processes like Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW), Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW), and plasma cutting.
Shielded Metal Arc Welding
SMAW 101

Shielded Metal Arc Welding

SMAW 101

Designed to instruct welders in welding safety with an overview of basic weld symbols, SMAW electrode types and selection, classification of electrodes, power sources and polarity. There will be discussions on advantages and limitations of electrodes as well as different welding techniques. Welding will take place on various mild steel thicknesses in all positions.
Gas Metal Arc Welding
GMAW 101

Gas Metal Arc Welding

GMAW 101

Designed to instruct welders in welding safety and the Gas Metal Arc Welding process (GMAW - MIG). Learn fundamentals of GMAW (MIG) including the metal arc transfers of short circuiting, globular, spray arc, and pulsed spray arc, and learn how various shielding gases affect gas metal arc welding.
Flux-Cored Arc Welding
FCAW 101

Flux-Cored Arc Welding

FCAW 101

Designed to instruct welders in welding safety and the Flux-Cored Arc Welding process (FCAW) for both Self-Shielded (Innershield®) and Gas-Shielded (Outershield® and UltraCore®) methods. Learn fundamentals of FCAW on 10 gauge through 1 inch thick material in all positions using a variety of electrodes, wire feeders and power sources. Typical joint designs used in construction and shipbuilding are welded, which consist of fillet, lap, groove and butt welds. Final weld tests are on 1 inch bevel plate vertical up with and without a backin bar
Gas Tungsten Arc Welding
GTAW 101

Gas Tungsten Arc Welding

GTAW 101

Designed to instruct welders in welding safety and the Gas Tungsten Arc Welding process (GTAW - TIG). Learn fundamentals of GTAW (TIG) for steel, stainless steel and aluminum. Welding procedures are taught on aluminum, carbon and stainless steels and consists of edge, corner, lap and fillet welds in all positions. Welding is limited to regular thin flat material, which does not include thick plate, pipe or other irregular shapes.

Add a new process to your arsenal of welding skills in a core welding course. Lincoln Electric offers several one-week-long courses designed to help welders of all levels advance and broaden their welding training.
