An EWI Online Micro-credential Course
The Welding Metallurgy course provides students with an overview of physical metallurgy, an introduction to welding metallurgy of steel, and a special unit on the welding metallurgy of stainless steels. Click here to see the full course outline.
Each of these three parts can be completed by a student on its own for 7.5 PDH credits, or all three can be taken together to complete the Welding Metallurgy micro-credential course for 22.5 PDH credits.
ENROLL IN INDIVIDUAL COURSE PARTS:
Part I: Physical Metallurgy: A Review
Understanding the heating and cooling effects of welding is critical for welding engineers and professionals. Part I covers the basic metallurgy principles of as background to studying how welding can create unexpected metallurgical phenomena that can impact results.
Part II: Introduction to Welding Metallurgy of Steel
Heat from welding affects welds and the metal adjacent it, leading to cracks, variations in toughness, or other negative effects. Specific procedures can ensure that welds are successful. Part II covers metallurgical principles involved in developing these procedures.
Part III: Welding Metallurgy of Stainless Steels
Due to their unique properties, stainless steels can be used in corrosive and extreme-temperature environments. Incorrect welding procedures or the wrong choice of filler metal, however, can cause rapid corrosion, cracking, and failure. Most mistakes, however, can be avoided. Part iii focuses on the metallurgy in welding stainless steels.
