We can help you achieve this!

The terms ‘welder codings’ or ‘coded welder’ have been used to demonstrate the competency of a welder, however the correct terminology for numerous standards is welder qualification or welder approval.

We can offer you accredited Inspection Body (type A) and Recognised Third Party Organisation (RTPO) qualifications that if you sponsor yourself you can also hold them in your own name.

We will also help you in determining the most suitable test(s) for you to produce to obtain the widest range of qualification(s)..

Why not use our well-equipped drop-in testing facility to achieve your accredited welding qualifications?
