I-CAR Spot Welding Course Now Includes Live Demonstration

I-CAR, the Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair, has announced that on May 21, it will integrate a live demonstration component into its classroom-led Squeeze-Type Resistance Spot Welding (WCS04) course.
While the overall course content will remain the same, some of the modules of the course will be enhanced by demonstrations on properly setting up machines, aligning and maintaining the electrode tips, making spot welds, identifying and correcting weld defects, understanding how to visually inspect spot welds, and instructions on how to destructively test welds for quality.

“With an increased number of vehicles being manufactured with high-strength steel and ultra high-strength steel, spot-welding is an effective solution for minimizing the heat affect zone," said I-CAR Technical Director Jason Bartanen. "The process of spot welding for attaching body panels and components has many other benefits. Among the benefits are decreased damage to corrosion protection and replication of production weld appearance.

“Proper training and an understanding of the practices and techniques employed during spot welding weigh significantly on a technician’s ability to achieve a proper weld. The newly added live demonstration portions of this course will help teach these practical applications and provide students with a visual learning format, which will enhance the learning experience.”

This course fulfills I-CAR ProLevel 1 training requirements for the Steel Structural Technician and I-CAR ProLevel 2 training requirements for the Non-Structural Technician.
