Anyone who has not had previous exposure to welding, but needs to understand its fundamentals, will benefit from the practical understanding of welding technology offered here.
Participants should bring a calculator and several pencils or mechanical pencils to class. Participants receive a course notebook, a copy of Modern Welding Technology, 6th Edition, and a copy of AWS A3.0 Standard Welding Terms.
You Will Learn to:
- Explain and identify welding terms and definitions
- Explain how to specify various weld types and nondestructive testing using standard AWS welding symbols
- Explain basic welding metallurgy
- Describe Heat Treatments, residual stresses, and distortion control
- Explain welding processes and power supplies
- Differentiate AWS and ASME construction codes
- Identify Welding Procedure Specifications (WPS), including description, documentation, qualification, and mechanical testing
- Explain common weld defects, causes, and corrective actions
- Identify major design considerations when designing a weld
- Identify common NDT used to examine welds

Albert J. Moore Jr. is a principle of Marion Testing & Inspection which has provided welding and NDT consulting services and third party inspections since 1989.
His qualification include certifications as an AWS Senior Certified Welding Inspector with five endorsements, he is a NOCTI certified welding instructor, and he currently holds ASNT ACCP Professional NDT Level III certificates in four NDT test methods; RT, UT, MT, and PT. He has earned an AS in Civil Technology (steel design), a BS in Applied Science and Technology (Welding Technology), a MBA, as well as a Certificate of Professional Development from the Department of Welding Engineering of Ohio State University.
As a welder with over forty years under the welding helmet, Al has been certified for the SMAW, GMAW, FCAW, GTAW, and SAW processes on aluminum, carbon steel, stainless steel, nickel alloy, and titanium.
Albert is an adjunct instructor for the American Welding Society and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. He is a member of the AWS Certification Committee and the AWS Committee for Methods of Inspection as well as several certification subcommittees and the subcommittees responsible for the “Guide to Visual Inspection of Welds and the Welding Inspection Handbook.” Albert is a contributing author for “Inspection Trends” published quarterly by the AWS. In the 2011 authors competition, AZBEE selected his articles on the subjects of developing welding procedures, qualifying WPSs, qualifying welders, and destructive testing, published by “Inspection Trends,” for the Silver Award (2nd place) from a field of over 200 competing periodicals.
