Welding courses in preparation for CE Marking

Posted on by in News

The BCSA will be holding a number of two day residential Responsible Welding Coordinator (RWC) training courses aimed at helping members prepare for CE Marking.

The courses are only open to BCSA member companies, and the content will help in the preparation for subsequent CE Marking certification, using the BCSA members’ training and assessment route outlined in the leaflet – ‘Routes to CE Marking Certification for Steelwork Contractors’.

Each course is aimed at providing the technical knowledge required to implement and maintain an appropriate Welding Quality Management system and to prepare the nominated RWC for the subsequent assessment of its application. The range of topics to be covered include:

•    Basic welding metallurgy
•    Welding process technology
•    Standards and specifications
•    Welding inspection techniques
•    Welding Procedure and Welder Qualification
•    Writing Welding Procedure Specifications (WPS)
•    Welding Quality Management
•    Visual inspection
•    Weld defects
•    Weld acceptance criteria
•    The requirements for CE Marking
•    The BCSA RWC assessment process

On completion of the course candidates will be required to successfully complete a test paper and the BCSA recommends that those wishing to attend should have a reasonable background in welding and welding technology.

Courses will be held at the Thorpe Park Hotel in Leeds on:
Tuesday 21 and Wednesday 22 February
Monday 19 and Tuesday 20 March
Tuesday 24 and Wednesday 25 April

The course fee is £450 + VAT, and this includes accommodation, lunch and dinner.
