This course has a theoretical component and covers welding processes and equipment; materials and their behaviour during welding; construction and design; fabrication applications engineering; and fundamental practical skills.
This course also has a practical component, which although does not aim at providing practical skills to the candidate, it does however provide them with knowledge on the control of the different welding processes. The course covers specifications; verification of welder and procedure qualifications; and interpretation of test results and collation of reports and records.
The Course is intended for Engineering personnel with a National diploma in engineering or an equivalent qualification, intending to pursue a career in welding fabrication and for engineers working in site and workshop fabrication.
The practical component aims to provide a candidate with knowledge on the control of the different welding processes. The candidate will become as familiar as possible with the problems and typical defects associated with incorrect use of the different welding methods.
Exemption is available from the practical training module on application with a suitable CV showing experience with all the welding processes.
Practical: 8 days
Theory: 44 days
Exams: 16 hours
