TWI’s ‘Appreciation of engineering quality documentation review’ course has been
given the seal of approval by the latest group of students to complete it.
The class of 12 students, a mix of engineers, business analysts, administrators
and inspectors, took the three-day course at TWI’s Aberdeen base at the end of March.
Feedback from all who attended was extremely positive.
The ‘Appreciation of engineering quality documentation review’ programme they attended
is a popular course designed for anyone involved in the compilation and review of
mechanical or engineering quality documentation. Covering documents including material
test certificates, visual, weld audit and weld history reports and those relating
to post-weld heat treatment and pressure testing, it is essential learning for anyone
who works in engineering quality control.
Six of the attendees on the course were from Wellclad, a subsidiary of energy infrastructure
supplier Glacier Energy Services. Director of Wellclad, Robert Hutcheson, explained
what led him to send his staff on the course.
‘Glacier Energy Services took the decision to send our QA administration team onto
the course in order for them to gain better understanding of the role they fulfil
for the company on a daily basis,’ Mr Hutcheson said.
‘For many of the candidates, working with us is their first experience within an
engineering environment and first exposure to the technical documentation that accompanies
‘From interpretation of heat charts and specifications as well as ITPs and mechanical
testing requirements, the range of topics on the course was applicable to their
daily duties. The TWI course was a great chance for them to explore the need for
attention to detail as ensuring full traceability of all parts and processes is
essential within the oil and gas industry.
‘Glacier Energy Services have also sent other employees on various TWI courses and
always found the courses beneficial for both employees and the business. As a business,
we also gained ISO 3834:2 accreditation through TWI.’
The ‘Appreciation of engineering quality documentation review’ course will next
take place in the
United Kingdom in Middlesbrough, beginning 7 July. The course will also
be taught at TWI’s Abington headquarters in September, and again in Aberdeen in
Outside of the UK, the course will be held this year at TWI’s international offices
