The Welding Academy is fully approved by the TWI (The Welding Institute) to deliver coding qualifications. All tutors, examiners, and inspectors at The Welding Academy hold the relevant CSWIP qualifications, allowing us to conduct welder qualification testing at our sites.
BS 4872 applies to a wide range of general fabrication work where an approved welding procedure test is not required. Welds would usually be carried out in accordance with written instructions and the test weld is subject to visual or surface inspection, a bend and fracture test.
Depending on the particular weld configuration, each test can cover a range of welding variables, for example material thickness and welding positions.
Welder coding certificates must be signed every six months by a suitably qualified person to confirm the welder is still producing welds of the required standard. You must be formally re-tested at least every two years.
