IIW Diploma
The IIW Diploma is an internationally recognised qualification supported by the International Institute of Welding (IIW) and the European Federation for Welding, Joining and Cutting (EWF) for assessing the competence of tasks and responsibilities during welding coordination (BS EN ISO 14731).

The Diploma consists of three different levels: Specialist (IWS), Technologist (IWT) and Engineer (IWE). Although the topics covered in each level are similar, the depth and breadth are increased as progress is made towards the engineering level. The goals of each level are in line with the responsibilities outlined in BS EN ISO 14731(1).

Specialist (IWS)
Personnel with basic technical knowledge where the level of technical knowledge needs to be sufficient for the planning, executing, supervising and testing of the tasks and responsibilities within a limited technical field, involving only simple welded constructions.

Technologist (IWT)
Personnel with specific technical knowledge, where the level of technical knowledge needs to be sufficient for the planning, executing, supervising and testing of the tasks and responsibilities in welding fabrication within a selective or limited technical field.

Engineer (IWE)
Personnel with comprehensive technical knowledge, where full technical knowledge is required... for the planning, executing, supervising and testing of all tasks and responsibilities in welding fabrication.
