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
To communicate design specifications and other requirements to fabrication and weld production plans and sites, standard symbols are used to indicate desired welding and brazing information on production/ workshop drawings. This forms the core of this unit and the international B.S, AWS, and ISO standards are used and compared from the many different aspects of welding processes. Nondestructive examination requirements for welded and brazed joints are also discussed. Only a general overview is included since this topic depends on the quality standards being adopted.
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: Evaluate the purpose and application of Welding Symbols
Learning Outcome 2: Evaluate the purpose and application of Brazing Symbols
Learning Outcome 3: Evaluate Nondestructive Examination Symbols
