This course brings the fundamentals of Underwater Welding Technology – Arcwater Cutting & Inspection, in a very important didactic form, suited for everyone, beginners, students, technicians, engineers, contractors and all interested professionals, working or not with maintenance, storage tanks, bridges and oil & gas platforms. Since this course was deeply elaborated, it is required that the users pay first before viewing the entire course content, but a preview with 10 initial pages can be seen, in order the student can adjudicate and feel the advantages of taking this course.
The fundamentals of this course are divided in 13 basic sections as follows: Introduction, History, Conventional Welding, Underwater Welding, Underwater Robotic Welding, Underwater Welding Standards, Welding Procedures Specifications, Underwater Cutting Equipment, Underwater Welding Inspection, Underwater Inspector Training and Certification, Welding Inspector Knowledges, Electrodes – Basic Classification, Welding & Construction – General Standards, properly illustrated and clearly distributed in 60 pages.
Underwater welding technology is ideal for everyone who needs to be able to understand the various aspects of construction of bridges, oil platforms, maintenance and inspection, or speak the language of the underwater operations. This course is far more an introduction to underwater welding engineering and certainly is not a superficial presentation as students can enter into specialized programs with a didactic depth of understanding including fundamental concepts of conventional weldings, procedures, standards, arcwater cutting, commercial diving and safe welding works.
Most people have no idea how welding is made underwater. In this regard, it is relevant to note that, a great majority of offshore repairing and surfacing work is carried out at a relatively shallow depth, in the region intermittently covered by the water known as the splash zone. The advantages of underwater welding are of economical nature, because underwater-welding for marine maintenance and repair jobs as crossing-river bridges, bypasses the need to pull the structure out of the water and saves much valuable time.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
