City and Guilds Level 1 TIG Compliant Welding
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 Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) Welding equipment and processes safely and effectively.
During the course the delegates will broadly cover the following subject areas in depth.
- Know the process and health & safety requirements for Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) 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 TIG 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 TIG 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 TIG Welding equipment safely. On successful completion of the course, delegates will receive a certificate of attendance.
This course has been designed to meet the practical skills approved by City and Guilds at Level 1 and is ideal for anyone who has already achieved the relevant practical skills or appropriate experience to undertake TIG welding tasks competently and safely.
