Review Welding Operation and Quality Control
  • We are revamping the full qualifications for the Graduate Diploma courses. Applicants can still sign up for the individual modules under the specialisations.


This module provides participants with an integrated and practical overview of weld evaluation, welding design, welding operation and welding quality control. It offers a general understanding of weldability analyses, pre- and post-weld heat treatments, non-destructive testing and inspection for welded joints, welding design and simulation, welding process mechanisation and automation, as well as welding quality control. Trainees will acquire the skills and knowledge needed to understand the different techniques for evaluating and controlling welding quality as well as the most efficient welding methods. The module also includes case studies on preparing welding-related documents in real-life scenarios.

Why This Course

This module is specially designed to effectively guide participants towards quickly adopting the most efficient ways to control/improve weld quality and welding productivity. The module will train participants to build the competencies required to perform weld evaluation, undertake testing and inspection of welded joints, perform design and simulation, understand the welding process mechanisation and automation and control welding distortions. On successful completion of this module, participants will be able to evaluate, control and improve weld quality as well as improve welding productivity.

Who Should Attend

This course is targeted at operation managers, manufacturing managers/engineers, production planning engineers, materials engineers, mechanical engineers, production engineers, foremen and skilled operators, quality control managers/engineers, materials purchasing engineers, laboratory managers and engineers, as well as personnel from all manufacturing industries that deploy welding as a joining process such as companies in the precision engineering, aerospace, marine, oil and gas, automotive and electronics sectors.

What You Will Learn

What you Will learn
