The goal of this training course is to equip inspectors and QC personnel with the required knowledge and expertise in welding processes, metallurgy, inspection, testing and certification. Where welders and welding operators have laid welds according to API, ASME and AWS international codes & standards. This training course details industry requirements on Welding Engineering & Inspection.

This virtual instructor led training course includes a description of common welding processes, welding procedures, welder qualifications, metallurgical effects from welding, and inspection techniques so as to aid the inspector in fulfilling their role implementing API 510, API 570, API 653, and API 582.

The course consists of 6 online virtual instructor led sessions spread across three days. All training content is provided through your EngineeringTrainer account.

After the course you maintain 1-year unlimited access to the course, including any new course material. This allows you to perform modules again should you need to refresh your knowledge. 

Upon Registration Deadline we will contact you to arrange course dates and payment.
