Journeyman Welder II Course Description

40 Weeks / 1000 Clock Hours / 250 Additional Outside Clock Hours

1250 Total Hours / 36 Semester Credits

 

The course objective of the Journeyman Welder is for students to gain entry level employment in the welding field, as well as making each student a proficient pipe welder using SMAW and TIG processes, as well as teaching MIG & Flux core Welding, while providing skills for pipe welding and manufacturing. The course also teaches field and shop safety, pipe fitting skills and basic blueprint readings. Certain subjects may be taken out of numerical sequence to accommodate school class scheduling polices. The Journeyman Welder offers a greater scope of welding processes and allows more time to become polished in a certain specialty.

 

Certifications In:

  • Stainless Steel TIG Welding
  • MIG and Fluxcore Processes
  • Basic Plate Welding
  • Structural Welding
  • Pipe Welding and Fitting
  • Blueprint Reading
  • OSHA Safety Training
  • Advanced Pipefitting

Journeyman Welding II offers an additional 10 weeks/250 hours than Welding I. This course will expand on the pipe fitting course and include more hands on Fitting and Rigging.
