We have listened to industry, but more importantly -YOU – and have provided a certification system that measures the skills and knowledge of welding personnel.
The Australian Welding Institute is raising the bar on these important industry qualifications as well as giving you a quality alternative. To that extent, the AWI is committed to providing its members with ‘competitive choice’ and a cost-effective certification scheme; meeting the needs of all stakeholders in the Australian welding and fabrication industry. Working with Registered Training Organisations (RTO’s), we have implemented a nationally recognised scheme catering to:
• AS 1796 Welding supervision
• AS2214 Certification of welding supervisors
This certification scheme is designed for experienced personnel either currently working or seeking employment in the manufacture or repair of boiler, pressure vessel, pressure piping or high quality welded applications.
Each candidate must have completed the theory and practical skills requirements specified in the latest revision of AS 1796 and/or AS 2214.
Having achieved these minimum requirements and when the candidate submits their information using the appropriate forms, it will allow the Australian Welding Institute to assess qualifications issued by RTO’s from around the country.
If successful, the AWI will issue a certificate and wallet card, acknowledged and verifiable by Australian industry certifying the applicant as a Welding Supervisor.
Our strategy is to offer flexible, logical and progressive certification and education schemes driven by members and industry. We actively support and promote the AS 1796 and AS 2214 welding supervision qualifications. We have established an alliance with a number RTO’s around the country and take pleasure in supporting and promoting these RTO’s and programs and are now endorsing these important Australian qualification.
