Welding inspection is one of the most demanding skills in the field of process industry like oil & Gas, petrochemicals, aviation as well as power industries. The course has been devised to cover all the aspects of the welding processes and inspection. During this course our main focus will be on the duties of the welding inspector from the initiation of the job till the completion. This course will provide a solid base for preparation of international welding certifications like CWI and CSWIP. Also this course will provide forum of discussion to the participants for their own problems.
