Welding Procedure Qualification & Welder Qualification Tests

As a third party organisation and test house, one of our services is conducting Welding Procedure Qualification tests and Welder Qualification tests;  along with welding trials and welder training.

For welding procedures & welder tests we use qualified engineering technicians who are Senior Welding Inspectors, CSWIP or AWS Certified Welding Inspectors and IIW Welding Technologists or Specialists. Overseeing this we have a Level 3 BINDT Registered Consultant and an IIW Welding Technologist.
