¿Qué aprenderé?

Program Description

Welders are people who have training in and are capable of welding ferrous and non-ferrous metals in all positions, on both plate and/or pipe, using SMAW (Shielded Metal Arc Welding), GTAW (Gas Tungsten Arc Welding), and FCAW (Flux-Cored Arc Welding) processes. Welders use manual or semi-automatic welding equipment. They use flame-cutting, brazing and air-arcing equipment. Additionally, they use machines such as brakes, shears and other metal straightening and bending machines.

Welders generally plan work from drawings or by analyzing the job tasks, determining the materials and welding processes required to complete a project. Welders also use blueprint symbols to determine machining ey check product specifications using precision measuring instruments, and maintain equipment and replace parts when required.

They may specialize in certain types of welding such as custom fabrication, shipbuilding and repair, pressure vessel welding, pipeline construction welding, structural construction welding or machinery and equipment repair welding.

Certified welders will qualify to test for Pressure Welding Procedure tests in British Columbia (PWP), BCP-100. Pressure Certification procedural testing is administered by the BC Safety Authority.

Welders use a logbook to record training, competencies, certifications, endorsements and employment history.

This program does include a reading week in late february, Thus these hours are non contact and are not reflected in the total hours.

Career Prospects

Welders are in high demand in western Canada. Wages and job prospects are higher than the national average.
