To all Filipino Engineers who are planning to become a Certified Welding Inspector:
The most commonly accepted Welding Inspector’s Certificate worldwide are CSWIP 3.1 (Welding Inspector) and CSWIP 3.2 (Sr. Welding Inspector) offered by TWI-UK (www.twisea.com) and AWS-CWI and AWS-SCWI offered by American Welding Society (www.aws.org). The Canadian Welding Bureau (CWI-CWB) and Australian License is also acceptable but these two Welding Inspector’s License (CSWIP and AWS-CWI) are the most commonly accepted Welding Inspector License.
From Africa, to Middle East, to Europe, to America, to Australia and to Asia, these Certificates are normally accepted by employer though sometimes European companies doesn’t accept AWS-CWI and some American companies doesn’t accept CSWIP certificate but these companies are just few.
Other license? You can hardly use them in the industry as most of the employers look for either CSWIP or AWS Certificate.
The Welding Inspector’s Course offered by Heats is a preparatory course. We prepare Filipino Engineers for their further study for CSWIP 3.1, and the course instructor is a Certified Sr. Welding Inspector (CSWIP 3.2) with 15 years of experience in the Oil and Gas Industry.
