ABOUT WELDING COORDINATORS
Welding coordinators are integral people in the ﬁeld of welding, playing pivotal roles in ensuring the quality, safety, and efﬁciency of welding operations. These professionals are essential for organisations and projects of all sizes, as they oversee and manage various aspects of welding activities. At the Southern African Institute of Welding (SAIW), we recognise the signiﬁcance of these roles and offer specialised training programmes to equip individuals with the knowledge and skills necessary for their success.
Welding coordinators are responsible for orchestrating and managing welding operations at a higher level.
