IIW Diploma modules in Welding include three levels:
These courses are designed to take candidates through a career progression path that can lead them to an international welding engineer level. Graduates will be qualified to perform the essential welding-related tasks given in ISO 14731 in compliance with the requirements of ISO 3834. This makes the welding coordinators who hold IIW certificates in high demand by employers.
Who benefits from the IIW courses? And how?
The IIW courses are best suited to welding engineers, technologists, co-ordinators and managers who are involved in the process plants, structural steelwork, bridges pressure vessels, pipework and pipelines, storage tanks, offshore structures, general heavy equipment, shipbuilding and ship repairs, automotive, construction, rail, aerospace, power generator equipment, material testing or any industry where welding is the major joining method.
At least two years of related working experience in the welding industry is needed for entry into the programme. Candidates can attend training courses delivered by internationally renowned experts and gain globally recognized qualifications that can enable them to take up the role of responsible welding coordinator as defined in ISO 3834. As your knowledge of welding production, including design and advanced welding processes increases, you could provide verification of your welding skills when tendering for jobs and this increases your employability and the value to the industry.
