Is it for me?

Although AWP is taken as part of the Welding Process and Equipment module, you can also take it as a stand-alone course if you have a special interest in the welding processes that presented during the course - i.e. laser welding, electron beam welding, plasma welding, friction welding, resistance welding, etc.

What will I learn?

This module provides an overview of the more unusual welding and joining methods such as power beams, friction welding etc. and should be taken with module WPE1 for those who wish to gain a credit in welding processes and equipment.

What will I leave with?

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

  • Understand the principles of various welding processes and their application
  • Understand how different welding power sources work
  • Gain the breadth of knowledge required to succeed in the appropriate EWF/IIW examinations



What else should I know?

As there are various routes for obtaining the qualifications of Welding Specialist, Welding Technologist or Welding Engineer, your first step is to forward a C.V., copies of qualifications, plus transcripts if your qualifications were gained over seas for assessment.

AWP Module must be attended prior to WPE1
