WELDING PROGRAM OBJECTIVES

Students in UTI’s Welding program learn about the procedures and equipment required to weld using gas metal arc (GMAW), shielded metal arc (SMAW), flux-cored arc (FCAW) and gas tungsten arc (GTAW) welders. Students also learn how to weld in the flat, horizontal, vertical and overhead positions used for plate or sheet metal, and the fixed, rolling and overhead positions used for pipe.

UTI GTAW Welding Course

GAS TUNGSTEN ARC WELDING (TIG)

This course introduces students to gas tungsten arc welding, its characteristics and safety. Using the information they learned in previous courses, students develop the skills necessary to make gas tungsten arc welds on different metals, using both direct and alternating current methods.

UTI Virtual Course

VRTEX 360 “VIRTUAL WELDERS”

Application to safely practice welding before learning actual SMAW, (stick) GMAW, (MIG) and FCAW (flux-cored) processes in the lab.

UTI Pipe Welding Course

PIPE WELDING

The pipe welding course introduces students to the different methods of welding pipe and tube using multiple types of metal transfer. Students learn the welding positions used, from horizontal rolling to stationary or vertical, along with how to use the correct tools and equipment for cutting and beveling of joints during assembly.

WELDING CLASSES



Developed in conjunction with Lincoln Electric, UTI’s Welding training program curriculum includes MIG, TIG, stick and flux-cored welding processes throughout the 12 hands-on courses.
