Welding Instruction

The safe manufacture of welded products and structures is critically dependent on the skill and knowledge of individual welders. In order to ensure that welders are working at the required quality level, it is essential that their instructors are competent.

CSWIP Welding Instructors and CSWIP Specialist Welding Instructors are competent in providing high quality training. A popular career choice for experienced and qualified welders who seek new challenges, CSWIP Welding Instructors are responsible for initial assessment and instruction, while the CSWIP Specialist Welding Instructors provide training in a specialist area or assist a CSWIP Welding Instructor.
