Course description

This is a practical based welding course which will allow students the opportunity to perform practice welding exercises in order to develop the skills required to complete standard CSA structural welding tests with backing (‘S’ classification). Students will have the opportunity to weld in all 4 positions(flat, horizontal, vertical and overhead). Expectation is that successful students gain the necessary skills to pass real CWB administered qualification tests in one or more of the following processes: SMAW, GMAW, MCAW, FCAW. A qualified CWB inspector will be brought in to administer all “actual “ weld testing. The completed tests will be sent to the Canadian Welding Bureau for further evaluation. Individuals who successfully complete the CWB testing will receive the appropriate welding ticket.
