Technical Training

CWI-logo_130212Technical training at the Hobart Institute of Welding Technology is designed to provide training for personnel involved with welding support groups. Those who need a practical working knowledge of welding – such as engineering, quality control and management personnel – will find these one and two week courses very beneficial.

The courses are comprised of approximately 80% classroom lecture/ discussion and 20% laboratory demonstration. These classes are not designed to teach the participants to weld.

Courses are available to provide either a generalized background – or to target specific areas related to welding.
No audio or audio-visual recording of classes will be permitted.

Courses are regularly scheduled 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

This course concentrates on the single most used method of welding inspection — what we can see with the naked eye. Anyone involved with arc welding inspection, quality control, engineering or supervision should know the fundamentals of what to observe, “prior to”, “during” and “after” welding.

During this course you will spend time in the classroom and then in a “hands-on” lab session for actual practice.

  • Description and functions of common weld gages
  • Temperature indicator
  • Prerequisites
  • Marking repair welds
  • Visual Inspection prior to welding
  • Visual Inspection during welding
  • Visual Inspection after welding
  • Equipment required.
  • Terminology of weld defects
  • General requirements for workmanship standards
  • Visual inspection check list

The certification for both the American Welding Society Welding Inspector and the Welding Educator becomes increasingly important today.

Companies and educational institutions are requiring certification of their inspectors and educators to fulfill employment qualifications. This two-week course is designed to enable students to be prepared to take the exam. Throughout the course you will be using the same tool kits that are used in the test kits for the hands-on portion of the exam.

It is the responsibility of the participant to complete the application, be accepted, and to be scheduled by the Qualification and Certification Department of the American Welding Society.

The Society requires a minimum of seven (7) weeks to process the applications for the test. The maximum test time is 8½ hours, including break times and one hour for lunch. The examination will start at 7:45 a.m.

NOTE: A scientific hand calculator is required at the beginning of this course.
