Course Description

This Introduction to Welding Engineering training course provides the welder, engineer, and inspector a practical understanding of welding technology, with a goal of ensuring equipment reliability. The course introduces many of the common welding processes, discusses filler metal identification and selection, reviews key elements of welding procedures and qualifications, and provides guidance for field applied heat treatments.

The course also reviews the criteria for deposition of successful weld overlays, discusses defects common to welding processes, and provides instruction on the use and interpretation of welding symbols. Information is provided on purging and shielding gasses along with an overview of temper bead welding and hot tapping applications. The focus of the course is welding technology, but it also includes practical information that comes from instructors who have worked for Owner-Users as well as in a consulting capacity.

Our training course materials are developed and instructed by subject matter experts – many of whom are principal contributors on the relevant API and ASME committees.
