Overview of CWI Part A Training

The CWI Part A Training Course Layout

The CWI Part “A” training course classes are broken down into ten (10) major topics as listed below. Train-Eng has attempted to keep each module video between twenty (20) minutes and sixty (60) minutes. This allows the student to complete each module in its entirety so that the student can come back and start a new module video rather than trying to find where one left off in the video that was being watched previously. The main topics are as follows:

  • Module 1: Welding Inspection and Certification.
  • Module 2: Safe Practices for Welding Inspectors.
  • Module 3: Metal Joining and Cutting Processes.
  • Module 4: Weld Joint Geometry and Welding Symbols​.
  • Module 5: Documents Governing Welding Inspection and Qualification.​
  • Module 6: Metal Properties and Destructive Testing.​
  • Module 7: Metric System and Math.​
  • Module 8: Welding Metallurgy​.
  • Module 9: Weld and Base Metal Discontinuities​.
  • Module 10: Visual Inspection/NDE Methods and Symbols.
