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.
