Using simulation in training of welders

Name of the Exercise How to use simulation in training of welders
Number of participants 1-14
Duration 2 modules of 45 minutes
Objective For trainees:
· to receive relevant information regarding the simulation and simulators for welding
· to ensure the accumulation of digital skills necessary for the use of digital devices that create virtual and augmented reality.
· to receive relevant information on how to use the simulator in welders’ training
How to conduct it Module 1
Connecting to topic – 10 min
1. The trainer introduces in brief the tasks of the workshop
Interaction – 20 min
1. The trainer facilitates the involvement of the trainees by presenting short videos in which the real welding and simulated welding are presented in parallel.
2. The trainer asks the trainees to find differences between the real welding and the simulated welding, according to the videos.
3. Open discussion is encouraged by the trainer
Topics detailing - Brief presentation of the digital tools, both hardware and software types – 15 min
1. Trainer gives mini lesson to clarify:
· Why to use a simulator and simulated welding for training of welding personnel?
· What are the differences between the real welding and the simulated welding?
· What previous information are required to start using a simulator for training in welding?
Topics to discuss:
· Training digital tools and methodology
· Learning Management System
· Welding simulators.
Module 2
Exercise – Case study – 40 min
1. The trainer creates 5 groups of max 3 participants
2. The trainer organizes a contest in simulated welding: each group receives a fillet weld and a butt weld to make using a simulator. The team with the best score wins.
3. Each group will shortly present their experience using the simulator, and the trainer will encourage the critical and in common analysis of the activities
Closing remarks Closing – 5 min 1. Trainer makes short review of discussions 2. Trainer presents relevant conclusions
