The advanced welding course is designed to prepare students for employment in machining or welding occupations. The course is comprised of a core curriculum and two specialty options: Welding Technology and Machining Technology. Welding Technology prepares students to apply technical knowledge and skills in order to join or cut metal surfaces. It includes instruction in arc welding, resistance welding, brazing and soldering, cutting, high-energy beam welding and cutting, solid state welding, ferrous and non-ferrous materials, oxidation-reduction, reaction, heat treating, structural design and safety procedures. Machining Technology prepares students to apply their technical knowledge and learned skills in order to plan, manufacture, assemble, test and repair parts, mechanisms, machines, and structures in which materials are cast, formed, shaped, molded, heat-treated, cut, twisted, pressed, fused, stamped or worked. Prerequisite: CTR-101.
