Empowerment for Women in Welding Inspection

TWI India conducted the first ever CSWIP Visual Welding Inspector course (3.0) exclusively for women in Coimbatore, as part of the South East Asia Skills Enhancement Programme (SEASEP)

Women are breaking away from the conservative norms to develop their careers in new ways. This can be seen by the number of women who are now excelling in fields that were once reserved for men, such as welding, inspection, manufacturing, QA/QC, and construction. Despite the challenges attached to these type of roles, there are more women than ever aspiring to enter the welding industry and other engineering fields.

TWI India held a CSWIP Visual Welding Inspection (3.0) programme for women at Coimbatore Institute of Technology, Coimbatore on the 30 and 31 January 2020. 26 women took prat in the programme which was introduced by Mr P Murali, Deputy Director of Boilers at Tamil Nadu State Government, Coimbatore. He shared his own experiences and provided a motivational speech for the trainees before the programme began, delivered by Mr Jayakumar Johnson, Manager of Welding and Painting at TWI India.

The two-day programme generated a great deal of interest among the participants, which was demonstrated through the lively discussions that took place during the course.

TWI India would like to thank Dr. G. Suganya Priyadharshini for successfully organising this inaugural event.
