Fundamentals of Welding Engineering (AWSASME)
Course Description
This course is designed for the individual that needs to expand the candidates’ core competence on the subject of welding. Designers, inspectors, managers, or welders with a need to understand the fundamentals of welding benefit from the practical aspects of welding technology offered here. To introduce the various welding and cutting processes, this course gives an understanding of AWS filler metals specifications, types of welding flaws, related ASME Section V requirements for NDE, and the QA systems necessary for welder performance qualification. This course is also an excellent learning experience for people seeking a general knowledge in welding and related NDE.
The Training Course Will Highlight ?

The course covers the basic science and practical application of the most commonly utilized welding processes along with other essential topics such as: welding terminology, weld design, welding safety, electrical theory, the weldability of metals, and welding quality control.
