CSWIP Welding Inspector(3.1) Online Live Zoom Course

Is it for me?

The CSWIP Welding Inspector course is designed for inspection engineers and supervisory staff. Those with little or no previous welding experience are advised to attend the Certificate in Visual Inspection of Welds course to prepare for this course.

Everyone at TES Training understands that we are undergoing challenging times around the world at the moment due to the COVID 19 pandemic. We appreciate that attending in-class courses is impossible in most countries due to restrictions on gatherings in order to protect everyone.

However, with this mind TES is delivering online live courses, so that you can continue to improve your knowledge and expertise, wherever you are.

This CSWIP Welding Inspector Online live course is delivered in slightly different ways in TES’s training centres:

  • The course content remains the same as a classroom-based course
  • The student will be able to attend the theory training sessions, delivered by TES Training Lecturers, via Zoom, WebEx or similar platforms
  • The delivery of the practical aspects of the course  differs depending on your region

Also available is a distance learning option with tutor support – CSWIP Welding Inspector Online course.
