Recommendation: Current Los Angeles City or AWS certification for structural steel. This advanced welding course is designed to utilize previously acquired welding skills and techniques on ferrous pipe in the rotated and fixed positions. Emphasis is placed on the welding of open groove pipe joints using the shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) process. Subjects covered will include joint preparation, alignment techniques, pre-heat and inter-pass temperatures, and post-heat requirements. Pipe flanges and fittings will be identified as to alloy content and applicable welding procedures. Enrollment Requirements: WELD 210L or equivalent with a grade of Pass or "C" or higher.
