CSWIP 3.0 Plus - Visual Welding Inspector with Practical Module was launched
in 2012 to bridge the gap for candidates aspiring to be welding inspectors, but
lacking the practical knowledge to underpin their expertise. So far two courses
have run successfully with 16 candidates gaining the qualification.
David Bage, TWI’s lecturer and Visual Inspection and Welding Diploma Manager had
observed that on a regular basis, candidates were arriving to take their CSWIP 3.0 visual welding inspector course with virtually
no practical experience of practical welding. Frequently, candidates applying to
the course had come from an administrative or quality assurance and control background,
so lacked this essential know-how.
The new course takes place over four days with the first two being in the welding
workshop, where candidates gain the practical skills that can then complement their
theoretical understanding. There are then a further two days of welding inspection
teaching before the CSWIP 3.0 exam, including:
This course is available without the practical module: CSWIP 3.0 Visual Welding Inspector - Level 1 (2 days). TWI
also trains and qualifies welders and weld procedures on-site. For further information
