Welder training

Postby Gtmpsgt » Wed Mar 30, 2016 7:45 pm

My employer wants to setup a welder training program for new and current welders. We are having trouble finding training for advanced welders and continued education. Seems like everything out there is geared toward passing a coupon and not skill development. Any ideas? And this is a refinery so we mostly weld pipe.

AWS does have a pipe curriculum. You should be able to get the books and a list of CWE's, materials and test sites from them.

This might help with getting you started:

A location would help. In south LA/E. TX, www.gbria.org can turn you on to training.

Hey, where is your location. I am from Canada. I suggest you opt for a corporate training program by some welding schools. That’s the best option if you want good results training your current and new employees.

In my company they have arranged an institute to give training. That's the best for you. Connect with an Institute that gives corporate training in welding. That way, u can give training for new employees and give expert level training for your current employees. That's what we get here.
