EA Institute of Welding (EAIW) offers a course for welders at all levels of skill. Untrained, inexperienced trainees, with no previous level of education, but with appropriate health, physical and mental capability, may enter the programme. Trainees can however, enter at higher levels of this qualification providing the candidate passes the relevant theoretical examination and successfully demonstrates the required practical skills at lower levels.
If a trainee can demonstrate skills at an intermediate or high level it is possible to by-pass the lower practical modules completely. Welding Courses are presented at three theoretical levels of training. Each level is associated with a practical qualification level.
EAIW is therefore able to offer customised training programmes for individuals with specific requirements.
Course Duration: This depends on the capabilities of each individual,student, but typically 12 weeks.
Training Evaluation: Trainees must demonstrate the required level of skill in accordance with ASME Section IX or ISO 9606 and pass the required theoretical examination.
The graduating welder receives IIW Diploma and Code Certification to ASME IX and ISO 9606.
