SGS has scheduled eight Certified Welding Inspector (CWI) courses and certification exams in Latin America.

According to the company, the ability to accurately size and monitor pre-existing or growing discontinuities in welds, such as cracking, porosity, incomplete penetration, inclusions and the lack of sidewall fusion, is important for the oil-and-gas, wind-energy and construction industries.

The CWI courses and certification exams (PDF 81 KB) will be held in Columbia, Peru, the Dominican Republic, Panama, Ecuador and Argentina.

The training programme prepares candidates for the American Welding Society (AWS) CWI examination.

Participants receive welding inspection training and practical exercises in welding processes and procedures.

This training includes welding inspection technology and visual inspection workshops.

SGS also offers Certified Welding Educator (CWE) training and examinations for welding professionals who aim to work specifically in the welding education field.

This AWS certification confirms their ability to specifically perform operations associated with welding training and classroom instruction.

SGS is an authorised agent of the AWS and trains and certifies welding inspectors on behalf of AWS.

The company also provides training and certification services in non-destructive testing and services.

The SGS Training Calendar provides more information about the CWI training and examination schedule for 2010 and explains how to register for a course.
