In this course we will discuss the requirements for becoming a welding inspector. Just like welders, not all inspectors have the same required skill and knowledge.
This course addresses fundamental topics related to welding inspection. The AWS CWI body of knowledge is used as a guide. The fundamentals may or may not be "fundamental".
Since we do not have the ability to perform "hands on" inspection, this section of the course will be somewhat limited. However there are activities related to welding inspection that can be considered "practical" and will build your skills. One of the key skills is being able to understand the applicable code or standard. Most of the resources and activities within this section will be build around use of the "Book of Specifications-2016"
The primary goal of this course is to help users of a specific code become more familiar with the use and content of a specific code. Many of the concepts to be discussed in this section could apply to many codes.
