Welding I
WELD 211
3.00
Corequisite:WELD 212. 20/20 vision (corrected), good hand-eye coordination, general good health.
This course introduces the learner to theworld ofwelding. The course includes general shop safety and environmental issues; introduction
to oxygen/fuel gas supply systems, the oxyfuel cutting process, and theSMAW (ShieldedMetalArc-Welding) process; and an introduction
to interpreting basicwelding symbols.
Welding I Practice
WELD 212
2.00
Prerequisite:WELD 211. May also be taken concurrentlywith 211.
The oxyfuel sectionwill develop the student'smanual skills necessary to produce high quality flame cuts usingmanual operated flame
cutting equipment and accessories. The student learns andpractices the set up processes for the equipment for all phases of oxyfuel cutting.
The shieldedmetal-arcwelding (SMAW) section develops entry-level skills forwelders.This course specifically develops basicSMAW
skills as striking the arc,maintaining proper arc length, adjusting equipment andmanipulating the electrode.WELD 212 is required
concurrentlywithWELD 211, butmay be taken as a separate course. This coursemay be repeated for up to six credits. This coursemay
not transfer to a baccalaureate degree of art or sciencewithin the universities in theNevadaSystem ofHigher Education (NSHE).
