Joining your local Branch of The Welding Institute is a great way for you to meet other professionals in your area.

Not only will you be able to network with like-minded people, but you will also have the opportunity to share and gain knowledge from across industry.

There are a number of different Branch activities you can be involved with, both in-person and online, that are designed to facilitate your professional and social networks – offering you support outside of the workplace.

Plus, engaging with Branch activities allows you to build up your Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points…

To build CPD points each year – attend at a Branch event for an hour and gain 2 CSWIP CPD (also applies for attending Technical Group Events)

Benefits of Branches:

  •      Networking – The opportunity to get to meet people with same mindset as yourself
  •      Events – Online webinars, in-person seminars and a combination of both. You can access these at your local or other regional branch events
  •      Continuing Professional Development (CPD) - Carrying out volunteer roles and event attendance all form opportunities to achieve CPD points
