Sheet Metal Workers Local 5

Local #5 Condensed Welding Course

Due to the need for qualified welders in the South Eastern United States Sheet Metal Workers Local #5 has started a condensed welding course for our members. In this class members with little to no welding experience are learning to weld SMAW process. Starting in 2G with 70 series rods through a visual inspection then moving to 3G positioning and finishing with 4G destructive testing.
After completion of the SMAW process switching to GMAW and working on 10 gauges and under mild and stainless steels in all positions. Students are learning proper machine set up and learning correct shielding gas usage.
After completion of the GMAW, students are moving to the GTAW process learning proper set up, tungsten selection and gas selection. Starting with visual fillet testing then moving through 2, 3, and 4G positioning.
The need for skilled welders is on the rise and Local #5 will be here to help our signatory contractors to obtain the highest skilled craftsperson in the industry.

In Unity,
Jason Andrews
