Welding

Post-Secondary Education - Trades & Technology

Sask Polytech Applied Certificate

The Welding Applied Certificate Program provides you with knowledge and skill development in operating welding equipment and performing basic welding operations, such as SMAW (stick) and GMAW (MIG) welding. This program includes a work experience component. Trade time and academic credit may be available to graduates who find employment in the trade and register as apprentices.

Graduates may find employment in refineries, construction, pulp and paper mills, manufacturing or processing plants, mines or repair shops.

The Welding Applied Certificate is approximately 20 weeks long.

The following courses are offered:

COMM 127 - Industry Communications

You will practice fundamental employability skills related to oral and written communications. You will also practice employability skills related to working effectively with others. You will learn personal employability skills and the effect of attitudes and behaviours on successful job search.

Credit Units: 2  Course Hours: 30.0

Equivalent Course(s): COMM 127A, COMM 187, COMM 191, COMM 193, JOBS 190, TCOM 105, TCOM 120, TCOM 140

MATH 125 - Welding Mathematics

You will learn math concepts commonly used in the Welding trade. After reviewing basic mathematics and basic equations, you will solve applied percent and proportion problems. You will perform Imperial and SI conversions, and calculate the perimeter, area and volume of many common shapes, as well as use Pythagorean theorem. Trade applications include using protractors and steel tapes as well as calculating stretchouts and economical layout of various plates.

Credit Units: 2  Course Hours: 30.0

Equivalent Course(s): MATH 106, MATH 130, MATH 170, MATH 187, MATH 299

METL 100 - Metallurgy and Heat Treatment of Metals

You will become familiar with the physical and chemical properties of commonly used metals in the welding trade. You will study the effect of the heating and cooling cycle involved in welding operations (with particular attention given to the heat affected zone). You will also review the use of heat to correct distortion and to change the physical properties of metals, and the classification system for identifying metal.

Credit Units: 2  Course Hours: 24.0

PRNT 114 - Blueprint Interpretation

You will develop your ability to read and interpret basic welding and fabricating drawings. The course covers the basic elements of a blueprint, weld symbols, joint types, structural shapes, developing a bill of material and using the Imperial and metric systems of measurement.

Credit Units: 2  Course Hours: 30.0

SFTY 114 - Trade Safety

You will learn safe working practices and study regulations related to the trade.

Credit Units: 1  Course Hours: 12.0

WELD 104 - Cutting Processes

You will acquire skill in using freehand and guided methods for cutting mild steel. The freehand method is used to make straight cuts in 14 gauge and straight cuts, bevel cuts and pierce holes in the plate. The guided method is used to do straight cuts, bevel cuts, and cut circles from plate. You will also be introduced to plasma arc cutting.

Credit Units: 4  Course Hours: 60.0

WLDR 121 - Gas Metal Arc Welding 1

You will be introduced to the gas metal arc welding process. The course content includes setting and adjusting the welding equipment for welding steel and aluminum. You will also receive an introduction to flux core welding.

Credit Units: 1  Course Hours: 20.0

WLDR 122 - Gas Metal Arc Welding 2

Building on the theory learned in WLDR 121 (Gas Metal Arc Welding 1), you will develop practical skills for welding steel and aluminum, and flux core welding.

Credit Units: 6  Course Hours: 90.0

WLDR 123 - Oxy-Welding

You will learn how to safely operate and maintain oxyacetylene equipment used for welding. The course includes the types of flames and their chemistry, the selection of filler metal and a comparison of fusion welding to braze welding.

Credit Units: 5  Course Hours: 68.0

WLDR 124 - Shielded Metal Arc Welding 1

You will be introduced to the shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) process. The course content includes setting and adjusting the welding equipment for welding steel and electrode selection.

Credit Units: 3  Course Hours: 40.0

WLDR 125 - Shielded Metal Arc Welding 2

You will continue developing practical skills in using the SMAW process (including vertical fillets).

Credit Units: 5  Course Hours: 80.0

Prerequisites(s): WLDR 124(concurrent)

WLDR 126 - Shielded Metal Arc Welding 3

Building on the knowledge gained in WLDR 124 (Shielded Metal Arc Welding 1) and WLDR 125 (Shielded Metal Arc Welding 2), you will continue to develop practical skills for welding in the flat, vertical and horizontal positions.

Credit Units: 3  Course Hours: 50.0

Prerequisites(s): WLDR 125(concurrent)
