Description

The Welder joins metal products in accordance with Welding Procedure Specifications using an electric arc or gas welding process. The qualification ensures that a sound skills base is developed at artisan level that can serve as the foundation for achieving coded welding status required for the execution of specialised welds by industry.

The importance of providing opportunities for persons that are unemployed, who seeks to develop skills that allows them to enter into small welding business opportunities in rural and developed areas of the country is supported by the design of the qualification. Specific skill sets in basic welding practices are inclusive and allows for the training of such persons within the overall structure of the trade.
