Welding procedure and welder operator qualification

Independent witnessing that confirms welder competency

Using verbal and written exams either at your facilities or the welding school, confirm your welder’s ability to make welds that meet national and international requirements.

Wherever you are in the world, our team of experienced inspectors are available to witness your welder tests in accordance with:

  • EN ISO 9606
  • EN 287
  • ISO 14732
  • AWS
  • Others as agreed
