Is it for me?

Currently in the United Kingdom alone, there are in excess of 200,000 kilometres of new plastic pipelines installed for utility services. Therefore, TWI is offering a new two-day transition course, suitable for those who currently work as metal inspectors, and who wish to be able to understand, identify and report on the inspection of welded plastic pipes.

The course is suitable for inspectors that currently hold the CSWIP Welding Inspector (fusion) – Level 2 Certification (3.1). It provides candidates with an understanding of the thermoplastic materials used in piping systems and the welding techniques used to join them.
