28 Professional Development Hours

After participating in this course you will be able to do the following:

  • Instill the WOW factor that is inherent in working with and fabricating metals
  • Recognize potential impacts of metal fabrication on the metallurgy of metals
  • Recognize potential impacts of the metallurgy of metals on metal fabrication
  • Recognize that each engineering field has its own unique metallurgical problems
  • Recognize that all the trades such as welders, machinists, engineers, shotpeeners, foundry mold casters, pressure vessel and pipeline fabricators, and electricians have inter-related effects on how their fabrications and work will handle the actual work environment either before or after repairs or construction
  • Learn the basics of metallurgy

Metal workers and all the associated trades that deal with metals, including engineers, all need an understanding of basic metallurgy.
