3. Ability to read, comprehend, and execute written weld procedures.
4. Capable of reading a measuring tape (to 1/16th divisions).
5. Possess a basic to intermediate understanding and knowledge of common material grades, pipe sizes and nomenclatures used in various industries where piping is commonly used.
6. Possess an understanding of the importance and relevance of material heat numbers, industry markings, and the relationship to material test reports.
7. Competency in GTAW, GMAW, SMAW, and FCAW processes.
8. Qualify in 6G Position. Most welding is done in rollout position or quarter welds, but 6G is sometimes necessary.
9. Capable of consistently producing welds using the process(es) above that meet radiography standards of ASME B31.3, ASME Section VIII, or API 1104 as required and visual inspection standards. Note: All pipe welding is stringer bead welding.
10. All welds must be made within established time standards. Excessive grinding on welds is not permitted. All completed welds must be aesthetically acceptable and uniform.
11. Ability to consistently produce fillet welds that meet the requirements of AWS D1.1 and visual inspection standards using process(es) previously listed.
12. Must be capable of accurately cutting carbon and stainless steels using:
A. Oxy-fuel equipment
B. Plasma Cutters
C. Abrasive cut-off saws and pneumatic/electric grinders with cut-off wheels
13. Application of welder I.D. markings as instructed or required.
14. Recording of welder ID and completion dates as required.
15. Capable of tack welding and perform soldering tasks.
16. Proper protection of machined surfaces while welding.
17. Ability to recognize “live” lines or lines that carry hazardous materials and the presence to properly deactivate, purge, clean, and/or question the correct procedure for performing the work on such lines (LOTO Procedures).
18. Ability to develop a macro-view of a job scope and translate that view into a sequenced work plan to efficiently accomplish the overall job goals.
19. Capable of safely rigging, lifting, and transporting loads.
