GM offers training on critical welding skills

| January 15, 2018

Training is always a great thing. Like most great things it also comes with challenges. For shops, locating the necessary funds and finding the time are the two biggest. GM is helping shops clear both these hurdles with affordable pay per use Web-based training that can be taken at the repairer’s convenience.

Courses cover some of the most vital and trending repair topics every shop should be exploring. Consider these classes on MIG Brazing, a joining technology used in production and called for in service repair for its compatibility to heat sensitive materials and Resistant Spot Welding, which your business probably performs every day but still could benefit
from some extra learning.

MIG Brazing Theory Overview (Course number S-SR04-03.01WBT or 22043.12W for ACDelco)
Compared to conventional Metal Inert Gas (MIG) and Metal Active Gas (MAG) welding, MIG brazing is a type of arc welding that enables welders to join metal parts at a relatively low
temperature. The lower temperature reduces the risk of burn-through, distortion, and stress in the base metal. This course presents an overview of the theory and practice of MIG brazing. Topics include safety precautions, equipment, methodology, and applications.

Resistance Spot Welding and Bonding Procedure Overview (Course number S-SR04-05.01WBT or 22043.17W for ACDelco)
Content focuses on the advantages of Squeeze-Type Resistance Spot Welding and Weld Bonding over traditional joining methods. The course also provides information on equipment, personal and vehicle safety precautions, and setup processes, as well as the techniques and configurations used in Squeeze-Type Resistance Spot Welding and Weld Bonding.
