Holistic welding awareness is one of the most critical skills for all engineering professionals working with metals. Welding design, procedures, and qualification play a critical role in maintaining public safety and technological advancement. Unfortunately, however, welding design specifications and procedures are not often covered in undergraduate programs, yet practicing engineers are expected to design welds, develop and review welding procedures, specify examination processes, and adhere to BPVC Section IX. This leads to a critical gap in the engineering workplace: the welders feel management has limited knowledge of welding concepts and those new to managing and designing welding admit they’re ill prepared to take on those responsibilities.
Together, the two courses in this official ASME learning path provide a comprehensive overview of critical welding terminology, materials science, processes, and the essentials for meeting the requirements of ASME BPV Code, Section IX: Welding, Brazing & Fusing Qualifications.
Course 1: Practical Welding Technology
This course introduces participants to the subject of welding technology, including ASME, API, and AWS welding codes and standards, NDE symbols, carbon equivalence, A-numbers, strength of welds, joint details, welding procedures, selection of filler metals, and preheat.

  • Course Schedule:  This course is offered over eight-day sessions, commencing at 10 AM and ending at 2 PM Eastern, each day, with breaks scheduled throughout. 

Course 2: ASME BPV Code, Section IX: Welding, Brazing, & Fusing Qualifications
This fundamental course trains participants to comply with the requirements of ASME BPV Code Section IX, Welding, Brazing and Fusing Qualifications

  • Course Schedule: The course is offered over four-day sessions, from 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM and 2:00 PM – 6 PM Eastern each day.  

Who Should Attend?
Managers & supervisors, engineers, production and maintenance staff, quality assurance & control, auditors, inspectors, welders and other technical personnel who work with metals.
