Basic Welding Courses Scheduled at Randolph Community College

ARCHDALE (April 19, 2017)

Randolph Community College’s Workforce Development and Continuing Education Division has set up three “Basic Welding” courses for late spring and summer at the Welding Center located at RCC’s Archdale Center at 110 Park Ave., Archdale.

The Basic Welding courses, which meet from 8 a.m.-2:30 p.m., on Saturdays, are designed to teach basic gas metal arc welding safety, fundamentals and techniques. The cost is $110.55. Three sections are offered: #61348, April 29-May 20; #62198, May 27-June 17; and #62199, July 15-Aug. 5.

Looking ahead to fall, RCC will offer a “MIG 1” class on the Asheboro Campus from 5-9 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays, Aug. 7 through Nov. 29. Basic Welding is a prerequisite, and the total cost is $240.55.

The MIG 1 course introduces metal arc welding and flux core arc welding processes. Topics include equipment setup and fillet and groove welds with emphasis on application of GMAW and FCAW electrodes on carbon steel plate. Upon completion, students should be able to perform fillet welds on carbon steel with prescribed electrodes in the flat, horizontal, and overhead positions. This class prepares students to obtain an ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) Welding Certificate (additional fee required).
