  1. Advanced Apprenticeship in Fabrication & Welding

    Comments Off on Advanced Apprenticeship in Fabrication & Welding

    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.

    Comments Off on General Welder – Intermediate Apprenticeship

    The apprentice will gain both technical knowledge and real practical experience, along with functional and personal skills. These are acquired through a mix of learning in the workplace, formal off-the-job training and academic study at college.

    The apprentice will learn the mechanical properties and weldability of welded materials and will gain an understanding of the common arc welding processes, joint types (fillet, lap, butt, etc.) and positions.

    The apprentice will also gain an understanding of the the major components of welding equipment, essential parameters for welding, the terminology, operation and controls for the selected arc welding processes, joint types and welding positions.

    The apprentice will be able to identify and understand the causes of typical welding defects and how their occurrence can be reduced, for the materials and welding processes selected and to also understand the functions of welding consumables and the requirements for correct storage and handling.

    The apprentice will be able to identify and select correct welding consumables for each application and understand and identify hazards and basic health, safety and quality requirements when welding.

    The pathways in this apprenticeship are; Welding, Sheet, Plate or Structural Steel.

  3. Improving Operational Performance – Fabrication and Welding Intermediate Apprenticeship (Level 2)

    Comments Off on Improving Operational Performance – Fabrication and Welding Intermediate Apprenticeship (Level 2)

    The Fabrication and Welding Intermediate Apprenticeship has been designed for individuals whose role involves dealing with general fabricated items ranging from catering equipment, ductwork and canopies for hotel kitchens to structural components such as building conversion steelwork to off shore oil platforms and subsea components. The Level 2 Certificate is aimed at individuals who undertake a broad range of activities that are often less routine and demand some level of independence or responsibility.
