CSWIP Plant Inspection training programme addresses the need for competent workers

Industry standards continue to be scrutinised to ensure good quality work and minimal risk and in turn, personnel are expected to be able to prove their competency and skill. TWI has recognised this growing requirement, specifically for plant inspection personnel to gain certification in plant integrity management, and is now offering the Inspection training scheme in a modular format. This gives prospective students the opportunity to follow a clearly defined, structured career path to attain internationally recognised CSWIP plant inspector certification scheme at three competency levels (Level 1, 2 and 3). An additional three training modules have now been added to complement the CSWIP Plant Inspection training programme, allowing students to progress to Plant Inspection Level 3 approval / status. The plant Inspection training programme is aimed at plant engineers, non-destructive testing engineers, materials and corrosion engineers, plant inspectors responsible for managing the integrity of ageing process equipment, pipelines, boilers and storage tanks.

The scheme is designed to suit plant inspectors working for manufacturing works (Vendor), inspection organisations, equipment owners and operators, classification societies, insurance companies and safety regulators. The courses have three goals:

  • To ensure inspectors and engineers responsible for plant integrity have the essential tools and skills necessary to assess plant safety
  • To recognise and certify plant inspector competence
  • To provide a structured path for continuing professional development of plant integrity practitioners through formal training/certification
