Program Highlights

This program is considered a Red Seal trade (see www.red-seal.ca - opens a new window). Apprenticeship grants are designed to make a career in the trades an attractive choice and to encourage more apprentices to complete their training. Eligible apprentices may receive up to $4,000 which can be used to pay for tuition, travel, tools, or other expenses.

As per the Service Canada website, registered apprentices who have successfully finished their first or second year / level (or equivalent) in one of the Red Seal trades can apply for the Apprenticeship Incentive Grant (AIG) which is a taxable cash grant of $1,000 per year / level up to a maximum of $2,000.  Registered apprentices who complete their training, become a certified journeyperson in a designated Red Seal trade, and who obtain either the Red Seal endorsement or a provincial or territorial Certificate of Qualification can apply for the Apprenticeship Completion Grant (ACG) which is a taxable cash grant of $2,000.

Program Outline

2020-2021

The student will be able upon completion of the course to identify oxyacetylene welding equipment and accessories, describe various oxyacetylene processes, weld mild steel in a flat position using oxyacetylene with filler rod making clean uniform welds and cut milk steel stock using same equipment resulting in a clean uniform cut.

The student will perform the basic trade calculations and demonstrate and apply the theory of torque and the use of simple hand calculations.

This course allows the student to apply the practical application of maintenance functions as they apply to machinery and plant equipment (i.e. equipment inspection and lubrication, installation of new equipment and alterations to existing equipment, and repairing of primary and secondary machinery).

The student will develop an academic skill that is related to the maintenance functions of industry in order that skilled assessments can be made of the needs to properly maintain the physical plant and related services.

The student will learn to read basic blueprints, drawings and free hand sketches, make elementary drawings, complete an assigned work project, and use drawing instruments for orthographic and isometric projections, etc.

Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to describe and observe arc welding safety precautions, select and use appropriate electrodes and arc weld fillets in the horizontal position with single and multiple pass techniques.

This course, upon completion, will enable the student to perform trade calculations using basic geometry and trigonometry of right angled triangles, and explain how trigonometry applies to angular measurement, gauge blocks and sine bars. Practical exercises will be given using the basic trigonometric functions.

This course allows the student to apply the practical application of maintenance functions as they apply to machinery and plant equipment (i.e. equipment inspection and lubrication, installation of new equipment and repairing of primary and secondary machinery.)

The student will develop an academic skill that is related to the maintenance functions of industry in order that skilled assessments can be made of the needs to properly maintain the physical plant and related services.

Upon completion of the course, the student will be able to read intermediate blueprints, drawings and hand sketches, plan and produce technical drawings (introductory), explain the basic principles of the planning of projects with respect to materials, construction members, methods of dimensioning and schedules, etc.

This course is a continuation of MILL 31, which will enable the student to describe the following arc welding procedures and welding methods. Welding of carbon steel and other specified alloyed steel, plate and edge preparation; he/she will also be able to describe destructive and non-destructive testing of welds and must complete assigned work projects.

This course allows the student to apply the practical application of maintenance functions as they apply to machinery and plant equipment (i.e. equipment inspection and lubrication, installation of new equipment and alterations to existing equipment and repairing of primary and secondary machinery).

The student will develop an academic skill that is related to the maintenance functions of industry in order that skilled assessments can be made of the needs to properly maintain the physical plant and related services.
