MMAW of welds in carbon steel pipe (Single vee welded from one side only)
A theory and practical based training program using a number of different processes/materials/consumables/weld positions and techniques to meet specified learning requirements for AS 1796 Welding Certification.
Assoc. Member Cost
As required by AS 1796 – 2001 Clause 2.1 Evidence of, e.g.:
Acceptable Trade Qualification
Training with process/consumables.
Duration & Delivery
Self paced – Depending on the candidates ability and experience.
Welding Certification to AS 1796 – 2001 (Certification of Welders and Welding Supervisors) Each Welding Certificate specifies, Process, Materials (type and shape) Position Consumables
Theory is run using a mixture of:
short, in workshop lessons
structured theory classes.
Students prepare and assemble weld coupons. This requires the use of different preparation equipment. Both hand and mechanical.
For each practical Welding Certificate or Process, a number of welds are performed.
Each in some degree harder, using differing techniques, building towards the ability to master the welds used for the Certification Examination process.
Positional welding using the process chosen.
Theoretical knowledge of Sections 1 to possibly 18 (depending on Certification chosen) as listed in Clause 2.2 AS 1796 – 2001.
Use of cutting and gouging equipment e.g. oxy/acetylene equipment.
Use of mechanical preparation equipment e.g. bevellers, grinders.
Use of hand tools, as required.
Both practical and theoretical examination as listed in Section 2 of AS 1796 – 2001.
Students are required to read and complete Welding Review Questions and a Safe Work Method Stetements (SWMS) before they can enter the workshop.
Correct PPE as approved by the Trainer/Assessor.

This unit has no prerequisites.
Duration & Delivery
1 Day - 8 Hours. All courses are delivered Face to Face in a classroom and in a practical area. The location is either at Ceputec centre or at a specified work location which will be confirmed in the acceptance letter
A Nationally Recognised Statement of Attainment
This competency applies to operators who are involved in the electrofusion of polyethylene (PE) pipes and pipeline components to quality assurance requirements whilst maintaining personal and immediate site safety. The key features in attaining the required quality are:
identifying materials being used in the installation as compatible for welding
calculating appropriate welding parameters to be used
maintaining and calibrating welding equipment
assessing quality of welded joints made. End applications include pipelines for transmitting gas and liquids.
This describes the essential skills and knowledge and their level required for this unit.
Knowledge and understanding of PE materials and pipeline components, as described in national standards, to recognise electrofusion welding compatibility, and suitability. Knowledge of detailed work instructions necessary to perform electrofusion welding, and the ability to implement within required parameters to attain required quality outcomes.
Knowledge as a basis for solving processing and material problems, including:
identify materials being used
identify compatibility of commercial operating systems
select electrofusion welding parameters for individual control units and fittings components
prepare electrofusion joint assemblies
set up and maintain safe working environment
operate control unit within required parameters
identify and rectify fault causes arising from machine operation and component variables
establish and maintain quality records
as relevant for the practical completion of work required.
Assessment will occur using industrial plastic pipes and welding equipment and will be undertaken in a work-like environment. Competence in this unit may be assessed:
by use of appropriate, industrial equipment, situations and polymers
in a situation allowing the generation of evidence of the ability to recognise, anticipate and solve problems
by use of a suitable simulation and/or a range of case studies/scenarios
by a combination of these techniques. In all cases it is expected that practical assessment will be combined with targeted questioning to assess the underpinning knowledge and theoretical assessment will be combined with appropriate practical/simulation or similar assessment. Assessors need to be aware of any cultural issues that may affect responses to questions. Assessment processes and techniques must be culturally appropriate and appropriate to the language and literacy capacity of the assessed and the work being performed.
Participants need to review the Learner Guide avaivable online proir to cource attendance.
There will be an assessment of the Learner Guide module in class.
