Welding Courses

TWI's practical welding courses and qualifications are designed to help create a skilled and competent workforce.

With a choice of bespoke on-site practical training, weld procedure development and witnessing of welder qualification tests at TWI or company facilities, our welding courses cover the main arc welding processes that are used by industry, whether manual or semi-auto, including TIG, MMA, MAG, MIG, and FCAW.

TWI's welder qualification tests are witnessed by CSWIP approved welding examiners and conducted in line with recognised international standards.Qualification standards in the global construction and manufacturing sectors are EN 9606/287, ASME IX and BS 4872 parts 1 and 2 in the UK.

The internationally recognised qualification standard for the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) is BCAR-A8-10, which is also the requirement for welding in the aerospace sector.

Career Progression

The practical welder training is an excellent choice if your company or yourself, as an individual, wish to pursue a career in welding inspection. The fundamental knowledge gained from the various welding processes and the advantages and disadvantages of each are invaluable assets for later progression in welding inspection.

A Variety of Training Courses e.g. Underwater Inspection

Underwater inspection is a much sought-after skill around the world and TWI’s training will allow you to gain the necessary skills and qualification to access the many employment opportunities this provides.

TWI’s industrially recognised and respected underwater inspection courses allow you to reach qualification at four different levels, using commercial diving skills and inspection knowledge in this specialised area.

Non Destructive Testing Training Courses

TWI's non-destructive testing (NDT) training courses give you a comprehensive understanding of the processes where tests are conducted on a component without destroying the item or its structure.

NDT is used across industries such as aerospace, oil and gas, nuclear, power generation, medical, rail and general manufacturing to name a few. It is a crucial aspect of quality control and ultimately health and safety.

Common or conventional methods include visual testing, penetrant testing, magnetic particle testing, eddy current testing, radiographic testing and ultrasonic testing and each have their advantages and disadvantages. With advancements in digital control and imaging, other techniques have been developed including phased array ultrasonic testing, time of flight diffraction, digital and computed radiography, phased eddy current and pulsed eddy current.

This training can be delivered for self-sponsored individuals or companies at basic, refresher or advanced levels across all of the major industry sectors, including oil and gas, chemicals, power, automotive, aerospace and construction.
