Introduction to 5S Practices in the Workplace
By Jessie Lloyd
Let's explore what 5S is and how we use it in the welding workshop.
GTAW Setup Guide
In this activity, we'll examine some common discontinuities associated with SMAW welding and review ways to prevent these problems from happening.
FVTC Welding Lab 360 Tour
Step inside this activity to view a 360° virtual safety tour of the FVTC Welding Labs.
Orthographic Projection #1
By Glenn Sokolowski
In this interactive and animated object, learners examine orthographic projection and the Glass Box Theory. Front, side, and top view development is demonstrated with pictorial views of each object to help develop 2D to 3D visualization skills.

GMAW Setup Guide
How to set up the GTAW welding unit
By Pat Medd
You’ll explore how to use Touch Sensing to do a one directional search with a Fanuc Robot and offset of the robot’s programmed path.
We’ll explore touch sense fundamentals, touch sense commands, and break down a touch sense program.
In this activity, we'll examine some common discontinuities associated with GMAW welding and review ways to prevent these problems from happening.
Robotic welding allows welders to create more consistent and higher quality welds. But, it requires you to understand the terminology associated with its programs. Watch this module to review terminology associated with robotic arc welding and the weaving process.
Reading the Title Block
In this activity we’ll explain what a title block is and how to read the information it holds.
Using Coupons in Welding Classes
We’ll explore why everyone should reduce the waste they produce in the welding shop. We'll also demonstrate some ways to reduce waste as you work.
The Basics of Welding Electricity
Explore welding electricity fundamentals including electron theory, parts of a circuit, welding power sources, and types of current.
Converting Between Standard and Metric Measurements
As a welder, you'll need to know how to convert between standard and metric measurements. Try this activity to practice converting between these two measurements. A conversion chart is provided to help you complete this work.
