Multi-Positional Welders will have the skill to produce good quality welds in pipe and/or plate using three welding process/material type combinations (TIG, PAW, MMA, MIG/MAG, FCAW) and (Carbon and Low Alloy Steel, High Alloy Ferritic/Martensitic Steel, Austenitic Stainless Steel, Nickel and Nickel Alloys, Aluminium and Aluminium Alloys) covering all welding positions (Downhand, Horizontal, Vertical, Overhead, Inclined).
Apprentices should be able to position, assemble, prepare and check the welding equipment and also receive, handle and maintain consumables. They will prepare, check and protect materials and work area ready for welding when at college. Apprentices will weld preparation and assembly prior to welding and accept for production.
They should complete progressive and final checks on the finished weld prior to release for formal inspection and report into the production control system. Students will ensure that health and safety requirements are fully accounted for all of the above.
