Welding is one of the most fundamental metal-fabrication skills, widely used in both manufacturing and construction. Pipeline welding tends to be cyclical, with major projects employing large numbers of welders. By earning a specialized certification in pipeline welding, attendees can improve the likelihood of being hired for these lucrative jobs.
Welding certifications are deliberately job-specific to ensure the welder's proficiency with the appropriate materials and equipment. The requirements for pipeline work are stringent enough to require a special certification and test procedure.
Test welds for pipeline certification are subject to visual tests assessing their appearance and neatness; mechanical tests to verify the strength of the weld; and radiographic testing to reveal any weaknesses in the bond.
Candidates must demonstrate good technique in cutting, positioning and welding the pieces in their test assembly, and must weld the assembly as it's positioned
by the test inspector.
Who Should Attend
Candidates with basic knowledge of structural welding. However, candidates without prior experience in structural welding are welcome to apply.
Basic school leaving certificate is mandatory.
*Attendees may be mandated to spend long hours of booth training depending on experience and technical knowledge of structural welding
