Converting from SAIW Welding Inspector (1980-1990) and Welding Supervisor to current SAIW Welding Inspector Level 2
01 February 2010
SAIW still receives occasional applications from holders of older SAIW Welding Inspector and Welding Supervisor qualifications to convert to the current SAIW Welding Inspector Level 2 qualification. This has been allowed provided the holders attend and pass Level 2 modules which were not included in their original courses, e.g. the Legal Knowledge, Radiographic Interpretation and Quality Assurance modules.
Over the past two years, SAIW has revised the syllabus for Level 2 Welding Inspectors and significant changes have been made to the course content. It is therefore no longer possible to allow conversion from the previous diplomas to the current Level 2 diploma. Individuals holding the older diplomas will now be required to take the complete Level 2 course before being awarded the new Level 2 diploma.
