TWI is delighted to announce the successful completion of the first welding course
to be taught in its new training centre in Kazakhstan.
A group of candidates completed the Welding Inspector Level 2 course leading to
CSWIP 3.1 in December last year, becoming the first class of students to receive
training in the new facility.
The centre has opened as the result of a partnership with local training organisation
Caspian Training Solutions (CTS). Located in Atyrau, a city at the mouth of the
Ural River on the northern coast of the Caspian Sea, it offers courses covering
a wide range of welding and inspection disciplines.
Among the programmes available are courses in welding engineering, welding inspection,
NDE inspection, corrosion inspection, health and safety, welder training and plant
As well as welcoming candidates to the training centre for teaching at the venue,
trainers are also available to visit companies in the region to deliver training
– either a standard course or one customised around the client’s needs – directly
Candidates who successfully complete training courses from the centre will be awarded
internationally recognised CSWIP certificates, which demonstrate a high level of
competence in their area of work.
The opening of the Kazakhstan training centre comes at the same time as TWI announced
the establishment of a similar facility in Baku, Azerbaijan, on the western coast
of the Caspian Sea. Both centres have been founded in response to high demand for
skilled engineers in the region, which is a major centre for oil and gas production.
They join a growing network of TWI offices around the world. As well as the oil
and gas industry, courses have also been designed to provide value to the aerospace,
construction, power and automotive sectors.
