Course & Qualifications

Welder Assessment Course:

As welding is a highly skilled trade, the first step in assessing an individuals welding ability is to take a ½ day session assessment – this will asses the individuals skill level and what level of qualification the applicant wishes to obtain & the amount of time it will take to qualify.

After the assessment, the applicant will be expected to solely undertake practical welding exercises – any weak areas will be highlighted and addressed in the training programme.

This ½ day welding assessment course is aimed at both trades people who are new to welding & non-trades people who wish to obtain practical welding skills.

Upon completion, attendees will be skilled to perform basic welding, manage equipment to a required standard and have an understanding of safety in welding.

Course Contents:
  • Managing welding equipment safely and understanding procedures
  • Selecting the appropriate equipment for each welding role
  • Setting-up & stripping down welding machinery
  • Managing practical welding exercises
Welder Training & Testing:

As you’d expect, progressing through the welding course is dependent on the individual’s ability – the modules listed below are for someone who is new to welding and wants to reach a coded standard.

  • Induction in safe working practices and Electrical safety
  • Setting-up & stripping down welding machinery
  • Preparation measurement and marking materials for welding
  • Practical welding techniques in chosen processes - Oxy Acetylene, MIG/MAG, MMA, TIG, Brazing etc…
  • Joint welding techniques, in welding positions to requirements
  • Examining, testing and diagnosing weld faults, using destructive and non-destructive methods
  • Correcting and repairing weld faults
  • Certified Code Welding Test, to a chosen standard; BS 4872, BS EN 287 / 288, ASMEIX etc

The range of welding courses on offer, align themselves to the Weldability-Sif Foundation and the TWI Intermediate to Advanced Level Welding programme. The qualifications give the individual a detailed grounding in the welding principles needed and technologies - which will result in a number of valuable qualifications;

  • EAL level 1 Award in Introductory Manual Metal Arc Welding Skills
  • EAL level 1 Award in Introductory Oxy-Acetylene Welding Skills
  • EAL level 2 NVQ Diploma in Fabrication and Welding Engineering Technology
  • EAL level 2 NVQ Diploma in Positional Welding Technology
  • EAL level 3 NVQ Diploma in Fabrication and Welding Engineering Technology
  • Craftsman Welder International European Plate or Fillet Welder (to be taken when sufficient level of competency is acquired)

The qualifications are recognised throughout the industry and are in high demand by employers.
