Limited class size to 15 participants.  This is our second class offering of Welding Symbols and will book quickly.


Welding Symbols Print Reading

This course will dive into welding prints that represent welding requirements. A weld is represented in a print using a welding symbol. A welding symbol includes a reference line, arrow element, weld symbol or symbols, and weld dimensions. A welding symbol may also have supplementary symbols and/or a tail when needed to indicate additional information. The American Welding Society developed the welding symbol to indicate different weld requirements. Many of the requirements for a weld depend on which welding code is being used. 

The various components of a welding symbol indicate the characteristics of the weld and provide specific instructions to the welder. After taking this class, users will be able to describe the requirements for a weld based on the different parts of its welding symbol.
