Askhat Kazibekov, an IRCA qualified lead auditor, has been working for the last 13 years with international oil and gas companies. However, he recently pushed his career forward by who successfully passing his Senior Welding Inspector course and exam at TWI (Azerbaijan Branch).

Askhat explained, “I am QA/QC Manager for the ‘KazTurboRemont’ (KTR) company in Aktau, Kazakhstan. KTR has built a new double joint facility for a pipeline construction project, where we have large number of staff in welding and quality (inspectors). Therefore, we used the qualification programme to grow knowledge of our personnel and to comply with all challenges. I also wished to pass the CSWIP 3.2 examination.”

He continued, “While choosing a certification programme, each of us has certain requirements. Of course, the best option to meet these requirements is TWI Training, which already has an indisputably great reputation in worldwide training services for internationally recognised certification. They have an advanced course development scheme which can show you new challenges after each step.”

Askhat went on, saying, “TWI has large industrial training programmes which are available in Kazakhstan as well, so you can be sure that there is a course to suit your needs. This international certification will really give a chance for growth in the oil and gas industry for young specialists and companies.”

Finally, Askhat revealed, “I applied for the CSWIP 3.2 programme with the TWI Azerbaijan branch; a leader in professional training since 2012 in the Caspian Sea region. The course is very helpful with a comfortable class and conditions. The lecturer, Mr. Hamidreza Saadat is very experienced and great at explaining the principles and fundamentals of welding inspection. In addition to all of the above, I was impressed with the amazing city of Baku and its very kind people!”
