From the Inside Flap

Its finally herea valuable guide for welding managers and a complete training curriculum all in one reference. Welding: A Management Primer and Employee Training Guide will aid those in welding management with the supervision and control of their welding operations, while offering working apprentices and industrial practitioners in-depth instruction on the basic manipulative welding and cutting processes.

Concise yet comprehensive, Welding: A Management Primer and Employee Training Guide is a hands-on reference that is organized in two easy-to-understand user-specific sections. The first section offers managers and small shop owners with the technical background and practical expertise to implement and manage their specific welding operations. Clear and unbiased recommendations, descriptions, and the operative aspects of several major welding processes are provided. Additionally, chapters devoted to metallurgy, blueprint reading, and welding symbols, along with descriptions of the high-tech non-manipulative processes will enhance managements ability to make informed decisions on purchasing, supervision and implementation of a variety of manual welding processes.

In the second section readers will find a complete curriculum for self or in-plant welder training. Written in an easy-to-follow manner, this section provides all the information and practical training regimens for each of the processes described. More importantly, it allows trainers to systematically present welding theory and practice to the student and to customize the instruction for any specific productive objective. With this in mind, students are not overloaded with large amounts of data and theoretical material that do not directly and immediately lead to productive work and proper job performance.

Welding: A Management Primer and Employee Training Guide also contains a glossary and an extensive data section containing important welding parameters for a variety of applications. Numerous photos and illustrations help provide thorough explanations.
