Certification System
for Welding Personnel
2.1 The Qualification System
and the Personnel Certification System
The IIW and EWF have operated a harmo-
nised training and qualification system since
1992, of fering courses and qualifications
for Welding Engineers, Inspectors, Welders
and others. These qualifications form the
basis of the widely accepted International
Diplomas. Cer tification of welding personnel
was addressed by EWF about 15 years ago.
A system was developed and its implementa-
tion star ted in Europe in 1995. This system
is now being transferred to IIW in order to
facilitate global expansion.
This International Training and Qualification
system now comprises the following docu-
