Coded Pipe Welding

This course is designed to provide industry with personnel who are skilled and certified in coded pipe welding. Participants will develop the knowledge and skills required to execute high quality carbon steel and stainless steel welds in the variety of positions encountered on engineering projects. They will also develop the attitudes, personal effectiveness and job seeking skills to enable them to obtain employment as coded pipe welders.

Applicants should have a minimum of 3 years verifiable welding experience within the mechanical engineering industry. It is also highly desirable for them to have previously completed a lower level welding course. They must be willing to work in medium to heavy engineering workshops and construction sites.

Induction – The planned outcomes and conditions attached to attendance on the course; good safety, health and hygiene practices; interpret the relevant sections of the 2007 Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Regulations and the 2005 Health and Safety at Work Act; the basic principles involved in environmental issues; and the meaning of equal opportunities.

Safety and Health at Work – Interpret the relevant sections of the 2007 Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Regulations and the 2005 Health and Safety at Work Act and the basic principles involved in working safely within an engineering environment.
