« back to classes page

This class is for the novice welder who would like to gain experience with the Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW) process, commonly called “arc welding”. The class is also open to those with experience who would like to refresh or hone their skills. The class will provide the student with the opportunity to practice or refresh other basic skills such as oxy-acetylene torch cutting and plasma cutting. Knowledge of hand tools and grinders is a necessity. Students are expected to bring their own safety equipment: safety glasses, leather work gloves, welding gloves, and hearing protection. Steel-toed work boots or leather work shoes are not required, but are HIGHLY recommended.
Tim Hammer currently teaches at San Benito High School where he has taught Metal Shop, Drafting, IT, and History. Prior to teaching, Tim worked as a welder/fabricator for several years in Fresno, California, and before that, as a pipefitter/millwright in the Central Valley. He also served in the U.S. Navy for five years (’84-’89) where he worked as a steelworker and a range coach.
