This course stresses advanced pipe welding techniques for welding open root, pipe-to-pipe connections. Students weld in the horizontal (2G), multi-position vertical uphill progression (5G), and multi-position 45-degree incline (6G) positions using E6010 and E7018 electrodes. Students test each pipe position using visual inspection and root-face bend test specimens.
