This unit forms part of the MCAST Award in Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) Pipe Welding (Low Carbon Steel) or (Austenitic Stainless Steel) and focuses on TIG welding theory and applied technology. 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 4, 11 ECVET Credits.
The course is designed for those learners who are determined to obtain a qualification to work in the industry with enough skills to produce TIG Pipe joints at industry standard in a selection of positions recognized by the sector.
Technological and health and safety requirements forms an integral part of this unit and as part of the final assessment, learners are given the opportunity to describe such requirements. Practice to set and operate welding sets safely is all done in fully equipped workshops.
This course provides progression across a range of welding processes and also progression to higher levels.
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.
