Qualification & certification of welders and operators
Smartweld Center has the ability to qualify and certify welders and operators under the supervision of a Notified Body (accredited to ISO/IEC 17020). The certificates are also valid for welding pressure vessel equipment according to the PED 2014/68/EU regulation.
Operators for semi- and fully automatic welding machines and robots
Smartweld Center offers training and coaching, customized to individual customer needs, for welding operators and robot programmers to achieve qualification according to EN ISO 14555 ( stud welding), EN ISO 14731 and ASME IX. High level welding robot programming courses are divided into 2 sections:
Section 1: Training program for robot language
Section 2: Practical training for welding parameters.
Theory + Practice
Training consists of 5 days of training ( 1 day per week) that consist of both theoretical and practical lessons
The theoretical welds are taught by experienced welding engineers who are also VT level 2 certified. The practical classes are given by experienced VT level 2 welding inspectors who will teach you tips and tricks of the job.
DNV-GL Certification B.V. issues the certificate ISO 9712 Visual Welding Inspector VT-w level 2 upon passing the exam and fulfilling the requirements. The DNV certificate is accredited by the Council of Accreditation in accordance with ISO 17024. After the last day of the course there is an immediate opportunity to take the ISO 9712 VTw-2 exam.
Manufacturers sometimes need the help of external, certified welders with certificates. We can double check the skills of your external welders through a simple welding test (with immediate RT or UT verification) according to their certificate(s) before welding begins in your production. This way of working guarantees that the quality of the external welders is sufficient and avoids further problems in your production.
