CSWIP and BGAS-CSWIP certificates demonstrate the holders’ knowledge, skill, and ability to perform role-specific tasks. But how can you demonstrate your competence in your day to day activities? When will you need to demonstrate your competence? There are a several ways depending on the situation and we explore some of them below.

Employer or Client

Prove your competence by showing your CSWIP or BGAS-CSWIP certificate and ID card. The information provided on these documents can then be used to confirm validity and accuracy through our free online certification verification service.

Inspection Report

Demonstrate your certification by stamping your reports using an official CSWIP stamp. It displays your name, candidate number and level of certification making your documentation sign-offs quick and effortless.

Remember only stamps issued by CSWIP should be used and are approved for use to demonstrate your certification. Gain yours today!

Audits or Inspections

Companies often undergo audits and assessments from regulatory or certification bodies to ensure continued compliance with requirements. This can often include looking at employees to ensuring that they have the competence to do the job they are employed to do.

If your certificate has been processed, but you are still waiting for it to arrive, you can still use our verification website to demonstrate your competence and the level and type of certificate held.

Career Progression

Did you know that many CSWIP certifications meet access requirements for other certifications or qualifications? For example, the CSWIP Senior Welding Inspector meets the entry requirements for the European Welding Federation (EWF) and International Institute of Welding (IIW) Welding Coordinator Diploma?

Your certification can be confirmed similar to that of an Employer or Client, but as TWI Certification Ltd (TWI CL) is also the UK Approved Nominated Body (ANB) for the Diploma, proving your competence and eligibility is even easier!

Friends and Family

Display your certification on your Social Media channels by posting about your achievement and tagging us in your post! CSWIP LinkedIn, TWI Certification Ltd LinkedIn, Twitter (@TWI_CL) and Facebook!

Remember, do not post copies of your certificate or ID card online! These are often used by others to create fraudulent certificates and ID cards, undermining the certification you worked so hard to achieve! Here’s more information about how to keep your certificate safe.
