Second and final of two courses based on gaining the knowledge to be prepared for the Certified Welding Inspector (CWI) Exam, which is administered by the American Welding Society once the qualification criteria has been achieved. This course is focused on the CWI part B (Practical: hands-on examination), and PART C (Code Book Applications) exam. This course develops student skill with weld inspection procedures, welding codes and standards, destructive and non-destructive inspection techniques.

Learning outcomes

1. Demonstrate the ability to perform the mathematical calculations needed for fabrication, documentation, and other requirements of a Certified Welding Inspector (CWI).
2. Create documentation of inspection process and results in accordance with applicable codes and standards.
3. Evaluate, using visual inspection methods and industry standard test kits, welds and weld discontinuities in accordance with welding codes and standards.
4. Identify and interpret applicable welding codes and standards in all contexts relevant to a CWI.
5. Evaluate, using non-destructive examination (NDE) and industry standard test kits, welds and weld discontinuities consistent with the requirements of a CWI.
