Qualification Test Training
Shielded Metal Arc Welding
Additional training is available to graduates of the Lincoln Basic Plate and Sheet Metal Welding who wish to take an operator qualification test for AWS structural code work, and to graduates of the Lincoln Pipe Welding Course who wish to take similar tests for ASME (vertical-up) or API (vertical down) code work. Welders with equivalent experience may also qualify for this training.


Flux-Cored Arc Welding Self-Shielded/Gas-Shielded
Classes are available to companies and/or individuals who want to practice welding techniques for passing an operator qualification test or procedure qualification test. This course is also designed to give the proper application skills to an instructor for in-plant training of FCAW-S (Innershield®) and/or FCAW-G (UltraCore®).
