Get Trained in Rooman and Fuse Metals Like an Ace Welder!


Welcome to this guide of Rooman’s fast paced certification training course to become a Manual Metal Arc welding (MMAW) Welder or also known as Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW) Welder. 

Metal Welding and The Welder

Welding is an assemblage or a sculptural process for joining materials, metals in this case, by treating the parts with sharp and immense heat. This results in melting of the material at the reaction spot and causes fusion on immediate cooling. The equipment used for welding is called the welding power supply machine in general. Manual Metal Arc Welding or Shielded Metal Arc Welding (MMAW/SMAW) is a famous welding process used to fuse metals. It is widely used in repair and maintenance industries, construction areas, metal moulding and fabrication factories, production units and so on. The reason for its popularity is mainly because of its simple functionality, versatility and fusing efficiency. Also, because of its cheap equipment cost, quick reaction and adaptability, this method of metal welding is widely popular in amateur fabrication shops, garage units and small businesses. It is extensively practised in such small workshops that require metal welding but cannot employ specialized welding processes due their expensive apparatus.

A welder is the operator of the welding process. He is in charge of fusing materials together with accuracy. He is a technician with appreciable dexterity and precision, who performs metal welding with perfection and swift. A welder’s job is typically similar to sculpting but is very fast paced and intense due to its risky operation, quality and flawless seam expectations.

A Brief Introduction About the MMAW/SMAW Welder Course

The MMAW/SMAW Welder course encompasses 3 out of 3 National Occupational Standards (NOS) of “CSC/Q 0204” Qualification Pack issued by “Capital Goods Skill Council”.

This extensive course consists of 3 vast modules that include well planned theory and practical sessions on the MMAW/SMAW process. It also covers training on best practices and work place safety measures required at a welding unit.

The following are the brief objectives of each of the modules:

  • Performing manual metal arc welding/shielded metal arc welding and Oxy-fuel gas cutting operations using a welding machine.
  • Estimate requirements of raw material and different measures such as dimensions, limits, tolerances, and so on. 
  • Maintaining and carrying out preliminary checks.
  • Correcting and calibrating tools for the job. 
  • Learning methods of extracting information from engineering drawing.
  • Measuring critical parameters of machined components and recording inconsistencies.
  • Replacing old tools and storing finished products.  
  • Practicing overall work safety and also, following health and safety standards.

The figure below depicts the brief outline of this training program:

Salient Features of MMAW/SMAW Welder Course

This section gives an overview of each module within the MMAW/SMAW course.

In this module, you will be given a thorough knowledge and training on Manual Metal Arc Welding / Shielded Metal Arc Welding and Oxy-fuel Gas Cutting through theoretical and practical sessions.

You will be given exposure different stages of this process as outlined below:
