    This course develops the welding skills necessary for the Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) process on carbon steel plate, aluminum, and stainless steel. Welds are performed in flat, horizontal, vertical, and overhead positions in short circuiting, spray arc transfer, and pulse mode. Prerequisites: Gas Metal Arc Welding I, Welding Safety and Theory I, and must be taken at same time as Welding Safety and Theory II
