What are the AWS-CWI CWE course content?

COURSE DETAILS

Welding Inspection Technology Workshop - 3 DAYS
Helps prepare you for the CWI  Exam (Part A)

The Welding Inspection Technology Workshop is packed with information on nondestructive examination methods applicable to common welding processes. It will assist welding inspectors and welding educators with knowledge of welding and inspection fundamentals useful on the jobsite. In addition, this seminar will prepare examination candidates for Part A (Fundamentals) of the CWI examination.
 

 Visual Inspection Workshop( 1.5 Day) 

Helps prepare you for the CWI/CWE 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. The workshop also includes a sample practical examination to prepare test candidates for Part B (Practical Applications) of the CWI examination.

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.

API 1104 Code Clinic( 1.5 DAY) 
Helps prepare you for the CWI Exam (Part C) if you are testing to API 1104

This four-hour course covers general provisions of API 1104, including qualification of welding procedures for welds containing filler-metal additions, design and preparation of the joint for production welding, nondestructive testing and acceptance standards, and automatic welding with and without filler-metal additions.

Candidates will be given the Course material for training before the workshop and are supposed to come with a thorough reading in the class. IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO MAKE THE CODE UNDERSTAND IN HALF A DAY
