This advanced course is designed for the experienced welder seeking certification for ASME or AWS pipe welding. Student welding is 90% of the time, classes are stand-up lecture and/or classroom theory. Processes covered are:

  • SMAW (Shielded Metal Arc Welding} “Stick”
  • FCAW (Flux Cored Arc Welding) “Dual shield/Inner shield”
  • GTAW (Gas Tungsten Arc Welding) “Tig”

Course Objective:

This course focuses on the skills and techniques necessary for welding open root pipe in all positions and prepares the student to become a certified pipe welder. The student will learn how to read and weld to a Welding Procedure Specification.

Course Content:

  • Use and understanding of the ASME & AWS codes for pipe welding
  • Proper joint preparation, pre-heat and set-up
  • Visual inspection of welds for defects
  • Fit-up and welding of pipe in the 6G position

The student will prepare and weld pipe with open root fit up. They will use E6010 as a root pass, and cover with E7018 or FCAW. GTAW root pass pipe welding is available but requires prior experience in the GTAW process. Each project will be tested on pass or fail basis. The final project will be the proper prep, fit-up and welding of pipe with the opportunity to test for ASME or AWS certification in the 6G position.

Other Welding Courses Available

The 5-week beginner/intermediate course covers the welding processes, techniques, and fundamentals for SMAW, and FCAW. Flat, horizontal, and vertical welding is performed with the goal of passing the FCAW 3G qualification test. One AWS welding qualification test with WABO is included in the course. All welding will be on mild steel.

5 week course (160 hours)

Welders entering this 5-week course will already have existing welding knowledge and foundational skills. The course will build upon that foundation and includes oxy/acetylene and the SMAW, GMAW, and FCAW welding processes. Out of position and full penetration welding are the primary focus. One AWS SMAW or FCAW welding qualification test with WABO is included in the course. All welding is on mild steel.

5 weeks (160 hours)

This combined Level 1 & Level 2 10-week course provides the student with a seamless training program. Two welding qualification tests with WABO are included. The cost is also discounted versus taking each course individually.

10 week course (320 hours)

The GTAW (Tig) course offers a 2-week course to learn steel and stainless steel welding. The four week course includes two weeks of aluminum welding. Testing is available, but is not included in the course.
