The course is designed for those determined to obtain a qualification to work in the industry with enough skills to produce sound TIG welded joints in a selection of positions to industry requirements.
This course provides progression across a range of welding processes and also progression to higher levels.
This is a 60 hrs of guided learning course. Students need to invest further hours in the course, which will include private study and home assignments.
Lessons are held as indicated on the prospectus and website.
Unit 1: Production of Simple Welded Joints
This unit is based on practical exercises to produce sound welded products in terms of performance of appearance and in terms of results following cupping test, nick-break fracture test and macro section examination.
Learning Outcome1: Carry out essential preparation of material for welding
Learning Outcome 2: Weld steel plates using single-run Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) Welding
Unit 2: Explore Technological Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) Welding Knowledge
This unit covers common technical specifications of Tungsten Inert Gas welding equipment and accessories, their proper use to produce good sound welds and the proper procedures that should be adopted when working individually and in an industrial environment under supervision.
Learning Outcome1: Follow Health and Safety procedures at the place of work when working with Tungsten Inert Gas Welding equipment
Learning Outcome 2: Work in a team
Learning Outcome 3: Outline the process specific requirements of Tungsten Inert Gas Welding
Learning Outcome 4: Test the basic destructive requirements of Tungsten Inert Gas welds
The following are the suggested pre-requisites and/or entry requirements needed:
Course participants may be awarded either an MCAST Certificate of Attendance or an MCAST Certificate of Achievement.
MCAST Certificate of Attendance
MCAST Certificate of Achievement
If the student intends to obtain a Certificate of Achievement, she/he is required to sit for an assessment/s. Assessment/s may take various forms such as a home assignment, class assignment, practical test and time constrained test. However, the assessment/s is not compulsory and an applicant may choose not to sit for it.
During the lessons, students should have their own safety gear to industry standards. (Gear to include safety shoes, cotton boiler suit, safety glasses and gloves)
