Participants will focus on skill building and small project work.
Basic Gas Tungsten Arc Welding 1 (#64484) will be held Tuesdays, March 3-April 14, from 5:30-8:30 p.m. This introductory course will provide a basic understanding of the Gas Tungsten Arc Welding process, with emphasis on welding safety, equipment set-up/adjustment and developing manipulative skills using the Gas tungsten Arc Welding Process. Welding skills will be developed by performing a variety of weld joints in the flat and horizontal position on mild steel and stainless steel. Welding electrode identification, applications and shielding gasses will also be addressed.
Both classes will be held at Watertown High School W-141. The cost for each class is $279 and students should provide their own safety glasses.
