  • Objectives
    This program provides welding skills training in the highly demanding pressure vessel and piping industry. The ultimate goal is to bring students up to the performance level required to meet TSSA pressure pipe welder qualification standards with the SMAW ('Stick') and the GTAW ('TIG') welding processes on both mild and stainless steel. Supporting training in theory will provide students with an understanding of welding safety, quality, blueprint reading, welding and cutting process fundamentals, and basic job search skills.

    Pipe Welder Certificate
  • Course description
    Level One
    DRWG1930     Blueprint Reading

    Description: This course will develop interpretation skills for metal fabrication drawings developed using orthographic projection methods. Basic drawing skills will be practiced with drafting tools and freehand sketching.
    Hours: 35
    Credits: 2

    WELD1820     SMAW Plate Welding
    Description: This introductory module will develop all-position fillet and groove welding skills using the shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) process with basic electrodes on plates with steel backing. Safe use of oxy-fuel, carbon arc and plasma arc cutting processes will also be included. Qualification testing in all positions to CSA Standard W47.1 with CWB certification is the skills expectation.
    Hours: 160
    Credits: 11

    WELD1830     Welding Theory I

    Description: This theoretical course will begin with an introduction to welding, health and safety issues, welding history and applications. The SMAW welding processes will be studied in this course with emphasis on learning the effect, set-up and control of the main welding variables. Application and set-up of thermal cutting processes used for the cutting, piercing, bevelling and gouging of various metals will be studied. The fundamentals of the Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) process will also be covered. This knowledge will then be used to assist in developing welding skills in accompanying practical courses.
    Hours: 40
    Credits: 3

    WELD1840     SMAW Pipe Welding - Mild Steel

    Description: This module will develop open-root pipe groove welding skills using the shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) process with mild steel cellulose and basic electrodes. Qualification testing in the 2G/5G or 6G position on 6-inch steel pipe to ASME IX code requirements with the TSSA certification is the skills expectation. Testing conforms to requirements of ABSA Grade B Pressure Welder.
    Hours: 140
    Credits: 9

    WELD1850     GTAW & SMAW Pipe Welding - Mild Steel
    Description: This module will develop welding skills on mild steel pipe with open-root groove designs using the gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) process on the root pass and shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) for the fill and cap passes. Qualification testing in the 6G position on 2-inch steel pipe to ASME IX code requirements with the TSSA certification is the skills expectation.
    Hours: 140
    Credits: 9

    WELD1860     Welding Theory II

    Description: This course will develop interpretation skills for welded joint design and welding symbols. Welding quality will be studied from a perspective of defect identification and reviewing cause, effect and corrective actions for various defects. Participants will also be prepared for the work required to find a job. It presents inside information on finding a job and teaches skills that produce results. Objectives will be selected for participants according to personal background and goals.
    Hours: 35
    Credits: 2

    WELD1870     GTAW & SMAW Pipe Welding - Stainless Steel

    Description: This module will develop welding skills on stainless steel pipe with open-root groove designs using the gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) process on the root pass and shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) for the fill and cap passes. Qualification testing in the 6G position on 2-inch steel pipe to ASME IX code requirements with the TSSA certification is the skills expectation.
    Hours: 120
    Credits: 8
