CATEGORY: BOILERMAKING/WELDING TECHNIQUES
UNIT STANDARD: Not unit standard aligned
DESCRIPTION: This training course outlines the specific issues relating to the boilermaking and welding disciplines, including how to use welding equipment correctly, the correct methods of welding joints, the basic principles and practice of welding and knowledge of how to use welding safely. Also outlined are workplace safety; the use of measuring equipment; hand, machine and power tools; gas cutting practices; the interpretation of engineering drawings and the design and manufacturing of basic steel objects.
DURATION: Full Training (Novice): 3 to 6 Days
COURSE CONTENT: Workplace safety
    We explain to learners the hazards and risks,     housekeeping, stacking, colour coding, hand and     portable tools, symbolic safety signs, lifting equipment,     ladders, scaffolds, machine guarding, Personal     Protective Equipment (PPE), types of PPE, confined     space, hot work, lockout systems and conveyors.
Hand tools
    We take learners through the tools and equipment     needed: hammers, chisels, hacksaws, spanners and     wrenches, pliers, clamps, punches, letter stamps, files,     scribers, steel squares, straightedges and wire brushes.
Power and machine tools
    We outline the use of drills, drill presses, grinders and     angle grinders.
Measuring equipment
    We outline the use of tape measures, rulers,     protractors, bevel protractors, combination squares,     callipers and micrometers.
Drawings
    We explain the common features, line styles and types,     multiple views and projections including orthographic,     auxiliary, isometric, oblique projections and perspective,     section views, scale, showing dimensions, technical     lettering and examples of engineering drawings,     abbreviations and symbols.
Cutting
    We discuss oxy-fuel cutting, apparatus, regulators, gas     hoses, non-return valves, check valves, torches     (welding, cutting and heating torches), fuels (acetylene,     hydrogen, MPS and MAPP gas), the role of oxygen,     types of flame, cutting, safety, eye protection, fuel     leakage, cylinders and flashback.
Basic principles and practice of welding and knowledge
    on how to use Welding safely - We talk about the
    We talk about the processes including arc, power     supplies, gas metal arc welding (GMAW), gas tungsten     arc welding (GTAW)/tungsten inert gas (TIG), gas     welding, resistance welding (spot welding), geometry of     a weld, quality of a weld, heat-affected zones and     safety issues.
How to use welding equipment correctly and the
    correct method of welding various weld joints
    We explain welding procedure specifications, welding     symbols, the fillet weld, groove welding, stick welding,     better restarts and SMAW troubleshooting.
Boilermaking
    We discuss properties of metals, marking out (typical     marking out tools), welding, sheet metal and special     tools.
Designing and manufacturing basic steel objects and
    exercising the skills of measuring, cutting and working
    with steel
