What will I learn?

This course will teach you the duties and responsibilities of a welding inspector including fusion welding processes, typical weld defects, types of steel (including carbon-manganese, low alloy and stainless steels), the hardening of steels, weldability, heat treatment, and parent metal defects.

The programme also includes visual inspection, the testing of parent metals and welds, and destructive and non-destructive test techniques.

You will also learn welder and procedure approval, codes and standards, and an outline of safe working practices. 

There will also be the opportunity to practice examination questions while undergoing continuous and end-of-course assessment. If you meet the CSWIP requirements for eligibility, you will be able to complete the relevant CSWIP examination on day 5 of the course.


In addition, you can purchase TWI’s online CSWIP Welding Inspector Pre-Learning package which prepares them for the course.

What will I leave with?

By the end of the course you should be able to:

  • Understand factors which influence the quality of fusion welds in steels 
  • Recognise characteristics of commonly used welding processes in relation to quality control 
  • Interpret drawing instructions and symbols to ensure that specifications are met 
  • Set up and report on inspection of welds, macrosections, and other mechanical tests
  • Assess and report on welds to acceptance levels 
  • Confirm that incoming material meets stipulated requirements and recognise the effects on weld quality of departure from specification 
  • Be in a position to pass the Welding Inspector examinations
