Welding CWB-GMAW (MIG) Flat

WELO 1652

You will learn to perform fillet welds in the flat position and flat-groove welds in preparation of CSA Standards 47-1 qualifications using ER70S-6 0.035" electrode. The theory portion includes setup, geometry and completion methods for the weld assembly. You will also explore parameters and variables accepted by the welding codes and standards, and qualification limitations and requirements.

Upon successful passing of your test assemblies (optional at an additional cost), you will receive a CWB Welder Card that is valid for a period of two years. Once you are employed by a CWB certified company, the company may request a transfer of qualification in order to obtain a welder card in their name.


For safety equipment, you will need safety boots/shoes, safety glasses and leather welding gloves.  If you have your own welding helmet, please bring it.  If not, you may borrow one of ours for the duration of the course.  We will supply leather shop coats (cloth shop coats are not acceptable).  There are no textbooks to purchase.  Your CWB test will be held the last day of the course (barring any class cancellations).  You must pre-pay for your testing before this date. No Class October 12. Cost of CWB Testing is extra.
