This course is intended to give a detailed description of a variety of Industrial Materials and their uses, and to explain the importance of major manufacturing processes and how non-destructive testing applies to the serviceability of manufactured products.

Course Objectives…

  • Demonstrate the manufacturing steps that consists of converting some raw material, which may be in rough unrefined shape, into a usable product.
  • Understand various material properties and product costs.
  • Explain the interrelation between material properties, qualities, quantities, and processes.
  • Explain various methods and components of joining processes. Discuss variables and metallurgical effects of welding, brazing, and adhesive bonding.
  • Discuss and understand material imperfections and defects, in-addition to welding related discontinuities and dimensional effects due to heating and cooling that can cause stressing, warping, and deformation.
  • Understand concepts of non-destructive testing and application as quality control evaluations to determine acceptability of materials and products.
  • Explain the value of non-destructive testing and the vital role of the production of engineered materials to the safe and efficient operation for intended use.

This course is 8 classroom hours worth 0.8 ICC continuing education units.

All other required materials will be provided by the Technical Engineers Apprenticeship.

This seminar will be held at the OE3 District 80 Offices on 3920 Lennane Dr. in Sacramento, CA.
