This unit forms part of the Course in MCAST Award in Weldability of Metals and the Management of Engineering Welding. Once a learner complete all the units in this course satisfactorily; that is has obtained a pass mark in the assessment and respected the 80% attendance s/he will achieve an award pegged at MQF Level 5, 20 ECVET Credits
The integral part of this unit deals with the correct and appropriate procedures to weld Carbon and Low Alloy Steels developed from practical applications and from the recommended manufacturers and supplier data. The welding classification and the main general classes of steel, according to composition, are also evaluated and the ideal technological set-up to produce quality welds to industrial standard is discussed.
This is a 32 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.
Learning Outcome 1: Identify properties of carbon and low carbon steels from the weldability stand point
Learning Outcome 2: Explain the contributing conditions to hydrogen induced cracking
Learning Outcome 3: Evaluate methods that should be considered to avoid cracking
The following are the suggested pre-requisites and/or entry requirements needed:
Applicants may be called for an interview prior the commencement of the course.
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.
