Concentration Description:
The Welding concentration focuses on careers that will build a knowledge base and technical skills in all aspects of the Welding industry. Students will have the opportunity to earn both NCCER certification and the WV Welding Certification for each skill set mastered and be exposed to skills to develop positive work ethics.

Course Descriptions:

1862 Welding I
This course is designed to introduce the student to the knowledge base and technical skills of the Welding industry. Welding I begins with the NCCER Core curriculum which is a prerequisite to all Level I completions. The students will complete modules in Basic Safety; Introduction to Construction Math; Introduction to Hand Tools; Introduction to Power Tools; Introduction to Construction Drawings; Basic Rigging; Basic Communication Skills; Basic Employability Skills; and Introduction to Materials Handling. Students will then begin developing skill sets in the fundamentals of Welding such as Welding Safety; Oxyfuel Cutting; and Plasma Arc Cutting. Students utilize problem-solving techniques and participate in hands-on activities to develop an understanding of course concepts. Teachers should provide each student with real world learning opportunities and instruction. Students are encouraged to become active members of the student organizations, WV SkillsUSA. The West Virginia Standards for Global 21 Learning include the following components: Global 21 Content, Literacy and Numeracy, Entrepreneurship, and Technology Standards. All West Virginia teachers are responsible for classroom instruction that integrates learning skills, technology tools, and content standards and objectives.

1863 Welding II
Welding II will continue to build student skill sets in areas of Air Carbon Arc Cutting and Gouging; Base Metal Preparation; Weld Quality; SMAW-Equipment and Setup; Shielded Metal Arc Electrodes; SMAW-Beads and Fillet Welds; Joint Fit Up and Alignment; SMAW-Groove Welds with Backing; and SMAW-Open V-Groove Welds. Students utilize problem-solving techniques and participate in hands-on activities to develop an understanding of course concepts. Teachers should provide each student with real world learning opportunities and instruction. Students are encouraged to become active members of the student organizations, WV SkillsUSA. The West Virginia Standards for Global 21 Learning include the following components: Global 21 Content, Literacy and Numeracy, Entrepreneurship, and Technology Standards. All West Virginia teachers are responsible for classroom instruction that integrates learning skills, technology tools, and content standards and objectives.

1864 Welding III
Welding III will continue to build student skill sets in areas of Welding Symbols; Reading Welding Detail Drawings; Physical Characteristics and Mechanical Properties of Metals; Preheating and Postheating of Metals; GMAW and FCAW-Equipment and Filler Metals; and GMAW and FCAW-Plate. Students utilize problem-solving techniques and participate in hands-on activities to develop an understanding of course concepts. Teachers should provide each student with real world learning opportunities and instruction. Students are encouraged to become active members of the student organizations, WV SkillsUSA.
