Visual Inspection Workshops Training (for AWS Exam Part B):
Mon - Tues: 8 am – 5 pm
Helps prepare you for the CWI Exam (Part B)

This workshop provides hands-on training in the use of weld measurement tools and plastic weld replicas to determine the sizes of various weld discontinuities. Students will compare what they find to the criteria in a sample codebook to determine the acceptability or rejection criteria of the sample weldments.

By attending this workshop, you can learn:
Use of inspection tools.
How to ensure compliance with the applicable code.
Do’s and don’ts of documentation.
When a discontinuity is acceptable.
When a discontinuity can be rejected.
Why visual inspection can be the most effective NDE technique.

To prepare for the workshop:
Arrive with a familiarity with working with manual measuring instruments and welding      gauges..

Complimentary resources provided with the workshop:
