Course Outcome

This very popular series covers the practical aspects of using oxyacetylene welding/brazing/flame cutting apparatus. It is strongly suggested that this series be presented in conjunction with ODE (Oxyacetylene Downstream Equipment) as this enhances the safety factors now in force with OHSA.

3 Modules The complete course consists of 3 video modules and 2 PDF manuals which include self-assessment

Module 1 – Equipment

At the end of this module the learner will be able to:

  • Identify the components that compose a typical portable oxy/acetylene set
  • Identify PPE required when using an oxy/acetylene set
  • Prepare oxy/acetylene equipment
  • Set up oxy/acetylene for gas welding process
  • Light a torch and set a neutral flame
  • Shut down the oxy/acetylene torch and equipment, and make safe

Module 2 – Welding Skills  At the end of this module the learner will be able to:

  • Select and attach appropriate welding nozzle for material thickness
  • Produce a welding pool and make a ‘puddle run’ on thin plate
  • Introduce appropriate filler rod material to welding pool
  • Weld a butt-joint in down-hand position
  • Weld a lap joint
  • Weld an open-corner joint

Module 3 – Flame Cutting  At the end of this module the learner will be able to:
