An International Welding Technologist (IWT) qualification is a strongly advised qualification for Responsible Welding Coordinators, and highly recommended in both AS/NZS ISO 3834 and ISO 14731.
IWT often manage, supervise, and oversee all company welding activities at a highly technical level. As such, you will likely have overall responsibility for the quality and coordination of all on site welding activities – a strong bonus for your resume.
IWT play an important part in any welding or fabrication project. An IWT qualification can provide significant industry rewards, through its holistic focus of all factors that influence welding quality, which proves your employability.
Unsurprisingly, an IWT qualification will also boost your earning potential and job security. It will ensure you are well placed to be the preferred candidate for large-scale welding projects on an international scale.
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.
