City and Guilds Level 1 MMA Compliant Welding
There are many different skills and techniques within the scope of hot working of metals in the broad skill field of welding. Each one of the many and varied welding techniques calls for some specialised skills and knowledge and this five day practical, hands-on welding course at our Technology Training Centre in Aston, Birmingham is designed to give delegates the skills and knowledge they need to produce welded joints using Manual Metal Arc (MMA) welding equipment satisfy the requirements of City and Guilds level 1.
During the course the delegates will cover the following subject areas in depth.
- Know the process and health & safety requirements for MMA welding
- Interpreting welding drawing symbols
- Identifying weld defects
- Set up of equipment and welding practice
- Produce beads on plate in the PA flat position
- Produce a lap fillet weld in the PB horizontal/vertical position
- Produce a tee fillet weld in the PA flat position
- Produce a tee fillet weld in the PB horizontal/vertical position
- Produce a corner weld in the PA flat position
Delegates should be using MMA welding in the workplace and have a basic understanding. They also will need to have achieved the relevant practical skills or appropriate experience to undertake MMA welding tasks competently and safely to the City and Guilds Level 1 standards.
The delegates are required to produce a welding test piece which is assessed to City and Guilds Level 1 standard by the instructor. They are also to demonstrate that they can set up and operate the MMA Welding equipment safely. On successful completion of the course, delegates will receive a certificate of attendance.
The course runs over 5 days and covers some underpinning theory to a level that will satisfy the requirements of City and Guilds Level 1. The practical elements focus on the development of welding skills typically found in industry which will enable the delegates to complete welded joints in simple welding positions using the Manual Metal Arc (MMA) equipment and processes safely and effectively. By the end of this course the delegates will be able to complete welded joints in simple welding positions using the Manual Metal Arc (MMA) equipment and processes safely and effectively.
