Australian Standards are increasingly placing more importance on the role of Welding Engineers. In fact, predictions show that an International Welding Engineer (IWE) qualification will be in increasingly high demand over the coming years.
An IWE qualification launches you into a world of opportunities. It demonstrates that you are dedicated to continually learning and growing in your field—qualities that are essential for success in the industry.
This course will see you obtain the globally recognised International Institute of Welding (IIW) IWE qualification.
Through this experience, you will gain a comprehensive knowledge of welding processes, and other important information regarding equipment, materials and their behaviour during welding.
This course is supported by a broad range of major industry groups and hundreds of Australian companies, which guarantees you of our strong job ready focus. Hence, an IWE qualification is a strong addition to your career portfolio.
This course features a blended learning program including pre-recorded material, live online lectures, and other learning resources, supported by innovative, hands-on practical exercises.
Together there are four blocks of five week theory modules, including two-three hour lectures each week.
There are also face-to-face training components of the course, which are delivered on campus at TAFE NSW’s Wollongong campus across five days.
You will learn a suite of knowledge, including:
- Welding processes and equipment
- Materials and their behaviour during welding
- Construction and design
- Fabrication and applications in engineering
The blended nature caters towards your needs and allows you to gain tangible knowledge to put to use in the welding industry.
DIPLOMA AND CERTIFICATION
After the successful completion of this course, you will be awarded with an IIW IWE Diploma. Then, after three years of industry experience, you can apply to become an IIW Certified International Welding (CIWE).
