Introduction to Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW)
VS14XX
Produced by Coastal Skills Training

 

 
  Duration:
0.38 hours

 
  What Students Learn:
This series is designed for new welding workers who have little or no knowledge of the field. All of the terms used in the series are explained and defined in the workbook, so the learners are not required to have a welding vocabulary to understand the courses.
This series of videotape courses and their accompanying workbook form a learning resource which will enable learners to master the fundamentals of welding technology. Each course is introduced by identifying the specific competencies expected of the industrial trainee. Then it shows how to perform the various techniques from the point of view of the welder. This series is intended to be used as an enhancement to your industrial welding preparation program.
