What will I learn?
This course will teach you about QA and QC as well as destructive testing, heat treatments, welding procedures, welding dissimilar and residual stress and distortion. The programme will also cover weldability, weld fractures, weld repairs, welding consumables, and welding symbols. In addition, the Senior Welding Inspection course will look into non-destructive testing, specifications, joint design, HSLA and quenched tempered steels, arc energy, and heat input.
This course offers 16 different subjects, so good prior knowledge and preparation will offer you a significant advantage before attempting the course and examination. Since this course builds on the CSWIP Welding Inspector course, it is advised that applicants refresh their knowledge by revising the material from this course too. You may also wish to increase or revise your knowledge through reading one or more of these welding handbooks:
- Jeffus Welding Principles and applications
- A C Davies The science and Practice of Welding & The Practice of Welding
- AWS Welding Handbook Volumes One and Two
