Welding Inspectors play an important role in the delivery of any welding control program.
Inspectors are responsible for ensuring that all manufacturing steps have been safely carried out, and are compliant with industry codes and practices.
Weld Australia supports the inclusion of Welding Inspectors across all projects to help maintain the highest levels of weld quality. As such, we are proud to offer a broad range of support services related to the industry.
Weld Australia membership is an investment in your success, and the success of your career. Membership is open to apprentices, tradesmen, inspectors, supervisors, technologists, engineers, academics and others with an interest in welding.

After the successful completion of these courses, you will receive an IIW IWI-S or IIW IWI-B Diploma. After three years of experience, you can then apply to become a Weld Australia Certified Welding Inspector, or a Weld Australia Certified Senior Welding Inspector depending on your qualification.
