CERTIFICATION

Welder Qualification

A Welder Ticket or Qualification is a Certification that a welder can produce welds meeting prescribed standards under a welding procedure specification (WPS).

To get the certification the weld must pass visual inspection, ultra-sonic, x-ray, or other testing, depending on specific requirements.

Our inspectors can issue qualification records compliant with national and international standards.

Welder Procedure Qualification

A Welding Procedure Specification (WPS) is a written document describing welding procedures. It is essential for every company that employs welders because it maintains quality standards across every weld.

A WPS is not just another document that you need to file. A WPS should be used as a tool on the workshop floor as it provides direction to the welder to produce quality welds by detailing material, welding technic, type of joint, welding position and welding consumables they need to use.

Our inspectors can create a Welding Procedure Specification (WPS) for your business that is compliant with AS/NZ Standards, ISO or ASME IX standards.
