Welding Certification - Practical (ACC00005)

Course summary

Gain welding certification (AS1796) by completing this short course which includes statutory and regulatory requirements, interpret welding terms, codes and symbols, effects of heat treatment, sequencing and planning as well as practical elements in either gas tungsten arc welding, alloy steel pipe, or alloy steel pipe over 270mm diameter. Students who successfully complete one of these units are able to apply for industry ‘tickets’ from the Welding Technology Institute of Australia.

To qualify for the full Welders Certification students will also be required to complete the theory unit, MEM05026C from the short course Welding Certification - Theory in addition to one of the practical units from the short course Welding Certification - Practical listed below:

MEM05042B – Perform welds to code standards using flux core arc welding process (AS1796, WTIA 8F) 

MEM05043B – Perform welds to code standards using gas metal arc welding process (AS1796, WTIA 8G)

MEM05044B – Perform welds to code standards using gas tungsten arc welding process (AS1796, WTIA W7)

MEM05045B – Perform pipe welds to code standards using manual metal arc welding process (AS1796, WTIA W4)

MEM05046B – Perform weld to code standards using manual metal arc welding process (AS1796, WTIA 3E)

Fees

The fee for each accredited unit in this short course will be $1496.25.
