TWI Training & Examinations ran its first welding inspection course in Kathmandhu,
Nepal, through its agent the
Institute of Inspection Technology and NDT Resources. The course was completed
on the 1st November 2012 with a total of eight candidates.
CSWIP 3.1 - Welding Inspector - Level 2 is designed for inspection
engineers and supervisory staff. The course is ideal for inspectors requiring preparation
for the CSWIP examinations - Welding Inspector. By the end of the course, candidates
should be able to understand factors which influence the quality of fusion welds
in steels, and recognise characteristics of commonly used welding processes in relation
to quality control. They should also be able to interpret drawing instructions and
symbols to ensure that specifications are met. The course teaches candidates to
set up and report on inspection of welds, macrosections and other mechanical tests;
assess and report on welds to acceptance levels; confirm that incoming material
meets stipulated requirements; and recognise the effects on weld quality of departure
from specification. At the end of the course, candidates sit a CSWIP examination,
which leads to the internationally recognised CSWIP certification.
The Institute of Inspection Technology and NDT Resources currently operates on behalf
of TWI from registered offices in the southern part of India and its expansion into
Nepal has enabled it to deliver inspection training to the Nepalese people as well
as CSWIP 3.1 - Welding Inspector - Level 2. Welding Inspector
– Level 2 courses for the coming year have been scheduled for 25t February, 29t
April, 1 July, 30t September and 4t November 2013.
