Electric Arc Welding
|Course requirement||STCW recommended|
|Duration in hours||40|
The subject covered should serve as a valuable introduction for those who have little experience in electric arc welding and is also very useful for experienced engineers. Trainees will gain considerable benefit as they will explore and experience a variety of electric arc welding techniques. The course includes specific principles of arc welding with their application in practice, using various techniques in operation.
The course is of limited duration and therefore cannot be considered as providing comprehensive arc welding training, which would take much longer.
This course is primarily intended for marine engineers who will be responsible to perform electric arc welding for the repair and maintenance on board ship, but is equally suitable for those engine ratings to perform their duties and responsibilities safely and efficiently during their on board employment.
Upon completion of the course, trainees will gain sound knowledge about:
- using safe practices at all times
- understanding the parts and functionalities
- the correct procedures for setting up and securing work any given electric arc welding operation
- the proper use of electric arc welding machine
- practical tests for the recognition of various materials
- selecting the appropriate electrodes in accordance to the required material
- proper procedure prior, during and after hot work operation on board
- welding faults and equipment for control and measuring welds and grooves
- proper maintenance of the arc welding machines and welding workplace.
This training course is intended for marine engineers and for ratings with on board experience.
- Introduction to electricarc welding machines, purpose, potentials and maintenance
- Introduction to safety procedures prior, during and after the electric arc welding operations
- Introduction to the equipment and tools which are used during electric arc welding operations
- Introduction to the tests for metal identification
- Introduction to welding techniques, joints, grooves and welding faults
- Practical work
