Pipeline SMAW-FCAW

Course #5

(Pipeline SMAW-FCAW)


Only available for WWA students that graduate from Course #3. This program is tailored to the individual that seeks employment in the pipeline industry. This program focuses on welding large diameter pipe with the latest techniques and equipment. We teach SMAW (stick) and FCAW (flux core arc welding) on high grade carbon steel pipe from 12” to 42”. We teach pipeline fabrication layout, branch “T” layout, weld repair procedures, low hydrogen downhill welding techniques, “hot tap” or “live gas” techniques, and sleeving procedures. As there is no universal pipeline welding certification, students will be required to pass the WWA certification test in order to graduate. Due to the fact that a majority of pipeline projects work on a 6-10s schedule, the weekly schedule for Course #5 will be 6-10 hour days giving the students a real life snapshot of pipeline construction. 240 hours total.
