Second visit to TWI in the UK for Angolan students
On the 29th February 2012, seven trainees of Wood Group Kianda based in Angola,
celebrated successfully completing a customised CSWIP 3.0 Level 1 welding inspection
course. Both Wood Group Kianda and TWI were happy to announce that all candidates
had achieved certification.
Wood Group Kianda has invested in an on-going programme to up-skill and to train
their employees in Angola, one of Africa's largest oil producing and fastest growing
countries. This was their second visit to TWI in the UK.
When the group visited TWI previously, the focus was on welding processes, practical
and theory which nicely complemented their homeland based academic and site based
training. Once the group had completed their CSWIP Level 1 training and examination
they then moved on to field exercises, assessing welds on vessels, pipes and other
fabricated pieces of equipment to give the candidates a greater appreciation of
a welding inspector's duties in the field.
The successful candidates now hold an internationally recognised qualification and
can be confident that they have the right skills to do the job correctly and safely.
