  • Written Welding Test

    Hay, I'm in skills USA down here in Georgia. i got a test written tomorrow to see who out of my region gets to go to the state level and actually weld, which don't make no since but whatever I just want to win. My question is what exactly is on a welding test the processes and stick, mig, tig, O/A, and blueprint. What can I expect and my biggest question what are written test like the unions use and other contractors?
    thanks

      Written Weld Tests

      Written Tests for welding?
      I never did understand that one...

      All the ones I have seen lately are heavy on welding symbols & safety.
      Make sure you know your fire extinguishers, how to strip down or setup OA (by the book how 2 step by step). Difference in CV CC machines and the Volt amp curve diagrams. What are low Hydrogen electrodes and there flux designators. know your welding (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 & 1 rolled) positions. The different types of welds (there are only 3 some places 4 - they are fillet, groove & plug) How to store low hi, temps, F4 designation, etc. What is a F3 electrode. GMAW transfer methods ie. globular.

      Good Luck

        We won region 7 in Georgia today. I was sick as a dog but I have to keep on keeping on. We'll be going to state competition in 2 weeks, i hear there test is extremely hard, but I'll study and pray, thats about all you can do.

        P.S. the test had alot on rigging and safety but not to much on actual welding. Where can i go to study rigging and the like?

          what were the rigging questions like? i'm thinking depending on the questions the best place is usually field experiance.

            Out here in California the Iron workers and Pipe fitters get really heavy into rigging. Center of balance, knots, where the weight is on different equipment. That's what I've been told and observed, I'm a sheet metal worker and during my apprenticeship, rigging was very brief.

                It's the same across north America lots of rigging, safety and material handling.
