Is it for me?

The Visual Welding Inspector course is designed for you as a welder, operator, line inspector, or foreman who carries out the visual examination of welded joints. It is also suitable for welding quality control staff and anyone who needs basic training in welding inspection, alongside a qualification.

In addition, this course offers some practical welding knowledge to help improve your understanding of the inspection of welded products. This consists of 2 days of workshop related activities alongside the 2 days of welding inspection ahead of the CSWIP 3.0 exam.

This course but without the practical module is also available: CSWIP 3.0 Visual Welding Inspector - Level 1 (2 days).

What will I learn?

This welding inspection course will teach you visual inspection procedures, relevant codes of practice and terms and definitions.
