Course CWT-2 Certificate in Welding Technology
Duration: 2 x 1 week modular programme
Course overview:This modular course is specifically aimed at all personnel who need an appreciation of a broad range of welding technology related to a specific industry sector and applications.
Modelled on part of the International Institute of Welding (IIW) and European Welding Federation (EWF) “Welding Specialist” syllabus the programme includes four key areas, namely:
- Welding process technology
- Materials and weldability
- Construction and design
- Fabrication and applications engineering
Each day concentrates on specific and focused welding technology looks at topics related sector specific components.
On day 1 of each module the timetable includes welding processes and specific details related to the control of welding for a given industry.
Day 2 of each module looks at the materials and weldability issues and concentrates on the different welding problems of materials that are used in a particular industrial sector.
Day 3 looks at design and construction aspects includes topics such as joint design, weld symbols, basics of welding design and failure of welded joints including fatigue and brittle fracture of welded joints.
Day 4 of each module concentrates on quality matters including quality assurance, quality control and inspection including both visual examination and non destructive testing. Welder and weld procedures qualification is also included during this time along with other topics.
The final day of each module looks at various practical aspects and case studies. The course concludes with an assessment for a Certificate of Achievement in Welding Technology for successful candidates.
