The course objective of the Journeyman Welder II 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 policies. The Journeyman Welder II offers a greater scope of welding processes and allows more time to become polished in a certain specialty.
Journeyman Welder II offers an additional 10 weeks/250 more hours than Journeyman Welder. This course will expand on the pipe fitting program and include more hands-on Fitting and Rigging.
