Pipe Welding Course

Pipe Welding Course

To provide training to an individual to achieve an acceptable standard of welding in pipe butt welding.

The delegate will preferably have an understanding of the welding process and have ideally undertaken a feasibility test to determine their ability and how much training they require.

Course Duration
The duration of this course will be dependent of the delegate’s ability.

Maximum Number
10 persons.

Training Aids
Lecture notes and practical demonstrations.

Assessment will be agreed between NETA and the individual or the sponsoring company.
