TWI runs first Portuguese language course in Welding Inspection in Brazil

Following feedback and requests from Brazilian oil and gas market professionals, TWI Canada ran its first Welding and Inspection course in Portuguese for the local engineering community.

The course was held in Rio De Janiero, Brazil on 14 June 2017 with all of the CSWIP course training and exam material having been translated in Portuguese. This included the course book, lecturer presentation slides, class handouts and even the CSWIP 3.1 exam material.

As a result of the success of this initiative it is anticipated that there will be greater demand for TWI welding inspection products in South America.

TWI expects to announce further local language courses following the same pattern in the future.

Aside from this, TWI is also working to translate ANDT blended course products (PAUT and ToFD) which it believes will also be successful.
