Internationally Recognized Certificate (ISO 9606)
An international Institute of Welding Course
EA Institute of Welding (EAIW) offers a course for welders at all levels of skill. Untrained, inexperienced trainees, with no previous level of education, but with appropriate health, physical and mental capability, may enter the program. Trainees can however, enter at higher levels of this qualification providing the candidate passes the relevant theoretical examination and successfully demonstrates the required practical skills at lower levels.
If a trainee can demonstrate skills at an intermediate or high level it is possible to by-pass the lower practical modules completely. Welding Courses are presented at three theoretical levels of training. Each level is associated with a practical qualification level.
EAIW is therefore able to offer customised training programmes for individuals with specific requirements.
This depends on the capabilities of each individual,student, but typically 12 weeks.
This course is presented in three modules, all including both a theoretical (10 days) and practical component (600 practical welding): International Fillet Welder, International Plate Welder and International Pipe Welder
Training is carried out using carbon steel materials and consumables. Trainees can, at special request, specialise in alloy steels, stainless steels or aluminum.
The curriculum includes the following processes: manual metal arc welding (MMA), metal inert and metal active gas welding (MIG/ MAG), tungsten inert gas welding (TIG) and flux core arc welding (FCAW).
Each process takes a 12 week period and on completion a candidate is issued a International Certificate of Competence in the training received. The best welders receive a 6G welder qualification.
Outcomes of Training
Upon completion of the course trainees will be able to:
- Produce basic fillet, plate and pipe welds depending on the level of qualification
- Have a basic understanding of the theory of welding
Trainees must demonstrate the required level of skill in accordance with ASME section IX or ISO 9606 and pass the required theoretical examination.
The graduating welder receives Certificate of Competency from the EA Institute of Welding (EAIW) accredited by The South African Institute of Welding (SAIW) and Code Certification to ASME IX and ISO 9606 from the Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS)
