The SMAW Module will expose students to a basic understanding of the Stick welding process. Students will also learn an understanding of electricity, weld defects, and metallurgy and how they affect the weld. Students will gain a basic understanding of the language spoken in the welding industry through codes and symbols.
Students will leave the SMAW Module course with more than foundational information and skill, but also a firm grasp of the industry’s needs and nuances. A student leaving the course will have a good foundation in any potential Stick welding career. However, while this class is not part of a program, students are encouraged to build a more solid foundation in the welding industry with other Process Modules.
The SMAW Module will be 3 days long (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday), for a total of nearly 22 hours of training.
