The description of the studying environment: Both theoretical and practical sections will be held at Pae 29, Tallinn. Safety and cleanliness are guaranteed. To study the theory, we have 4 classrooms. Depending on the subject, each class accommodates more than 30 people. The theoretical part is given in-hand (or on memory cards) to strengthen knowledge after the lesson. We also provide both personal protection and work equipment for practical exercises., gloves, work clothes and other protective equipment for safety.
List of training materials: DVS studying materials
Release requirements, including assessment methods and assessment criteria: At least 80% of theoretical and practical classes are a prerequisite for obtaining a diploma. In addition, it is necessary to conduct a final theory test and weld the part in accordance with WPS considering the evaluation criteria.
Theoretical Test (on paper)
At least 18 out of 20 correct answers
Documents to be issued: The complete certificate if the requirements in obtaining it are met. Certificate of participation if the learning outcomes were not achieved, but the student participated in the study. The certificate is issued depending on the number of hours visited, but not if the student participated in less than half of the lessons.
Summary: The course is intended for workers with metal (advanced level), who in their daily work are engaged in high-quality and accurate welding. The course aims to acquire professional theoretical and practical knowledge. A student who completed the course will be able to apply the knowledge gained, namely, to weld various materials and details, considering the conduction of his daily duties using tools and welding equipment. After completing the course and passing the final exam, the student is ready to work or take an internship.
Formation of the final result:
Knowledge and the use of professional terminology, successful completion of the practical part of the course
Visual examination by corresponding WPS.
