Program Curriculum

Combination Pipeline Welder

Introduction to Pipeline


Course Description: Introduction to Pipeline is segments of pipe that are welded together using the SMAW process, running an electrode in a downhill progression in accordance to API 1104 standards. Students will learn to weld 8, 10, 12 inch pipe in the 5G and 6G position. In addition, complete a branch test using 6010 and 8010 electrodes all in the downhill progression.

Advanced Pipeline Welding


Course Description: Advanced Pipeline is segments of pipe that are welded together using the SMAW process, running an electrode in downhill and uphill progression. Students will learn to weld on an 8, 10, and 12 inch pipe. In addition, both an Arkansas Bell Hole test (6G) and an In-Service test in both downhill and uphill progression will be completed during class.
