Flexible Learning with TWI - Three Options for Welding Inspection Training

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic having impacted societies across the world, TWI has been working hard to ensure you can still train, gain certification and improve your skills and career prospects.

Why Choose Welding Inspection?

Our CSWIP Welding Inspection programme offers you an internationally recognised qualification to prove your skills and knowledge based upon your competence as well as a vertical progression to senior inspector, a pre-requisite for many job applications.

While welding inspection requires a high level of knowledge, it is an excellent career choice for anyone who wishes to move on from a general engineering or welding background to a more prestigious and specialised role.

Learning Options

In the light of the Coronavirus pandemic, we are now offering three different learning options for our welding inspection courses. These options are as follows:

  • eLearning: Our eLearning option reduces the required classroom-based training days to a minimum, allowing you to work in your own time, at your own pace and from home. This option covers the theory element of the course.
  • Online Live: The Online Live option is delivered by TWI’s experienced training lecturers via Zoom or a similar video calling platform. The live courses are delivered in slightly different ways according to your exact location and the associated global training centre. This option covers the theory aspect of the training exactly as it would be delivered in our classroom-based courses.

Delivery of the practical elements of your course for eLearning and Online Live options will differ according to your region.

  • Classroom-based: TWI is still offering our full classroom-based training options depending on your region and the current pandemic situation locally.

Examinations for all options will take place at your local TWI Centre once it is open following the COVID-19 pandemic.

We also offer Refresher Training courses, classroom-based (Practical and/or Theory) or as eLearning (theory). These are designed to help you prior to re-taking an examination or prior to your CSWIP 10-year renewal examinations for Welding Inspector.
