welding Tickets according to AS1796

Postby Arsham » Tue Dec 26, 2017 4:18 pm

Hello everybody!
My name is Arsham and I'm migrating to Australia as a welder. I know there are a few Aussies here who can help me with this.
I am making myself prepared for the welding tickets according to AS 1796: certificate 1 up to 9
I already have AS 1796 standard but the information there is not quite specific about every single test. I'm looking for some WPS like the attached one below. Where can I find the information about these?Seemingly there is not even a single online bookshop that can provide me with such info. I tried to call the Unions but they keep telling me about registering for the courses and stuff, not giving me a direct response.
I'd appreciate it if somebody could give me some info regarding this matter.
Thanks!

welding Tickets according to AS1796

Hi Arsham and welcome.

AS1796 does not provide individual wps but does contain all the information you need in table form for multiple processes you just need to be able to understand and extract the information you require for each practical assessment. You won’t be able to walk right up and do test by the way. There is also a theory test and evidence of welding experience prior to the test. This is why unions are telling you to enroll in courses to get you through to certification. You may be able to apply for RPL recognition of prior learning if you have trade papers from another country.
You can get tested by a private certifying company but that is really expensive.
My recommendation is to enroll in a TAFE college when you get here, the theory runs in parallel with the practical training. If the teachers see you are competent to bypass the practical training and go straight to the test they will do it, I’ve seen it happen.
It’s a very rare thing to want all certs 1-9. If you nominate a couple you really want to do I will get my copy of the standard out tomorrow and spell out for you the test coupon requirements.

Hi Coldman and thanks a million for your thorough response!
I hate to admit it but what you said that all the tickets' details are available in the AS 1796 is true. You have to have the patience to extract all those details! But it would be really nice to have each test sorted neatly like a WPS, and FYI the Australian ministry of education awarded me with a " certificate III in engineering" so I believe I can skip the TAFE courses and jump right onto the welding tickets right?
another thing is that I have no intention of getting all those certificates, just the ones that I'm expert in. In my country, I'm certified under the ASME BPVC codes and standards. so I want to focus on the tests which are associated with ASME Section IX.
I'm aware of the fact that you have to pay for the coupon specs and other test-related standards, so I'm willing to pay for them.
By the way, thanks for everything...
