Welder Training and Test



EIWAA Oil Gas Services is an AWS approved Welder Training, Welder Testing and certification services in Saudi Arabia by providing 3rd Party Welding qualification. There are several levels of welding certification services and 3rd Party Welding Testing services available in Saudi Arabia including TIG welding, Arc welding, and MIG/MAG welding certification services. All of the major IACS classification societies in Saudi Arabia have approved EIWAA Marine Services, and it additionally holds AWS and ISO/IEC 17020 accreditations. Welders are qualified at various levels in accordance with ARAMCO/IACS Standards through our third-party welder testing services.
The technical and useful applications of shielded metal arc welding, flux core arc welding, gas metal arc welding, gas tungsten arc welding, and oxy fuel-acetylene cutting processes are highlighted in addition to safety and weld testing on metals. Welders will be able to understand welding symbols from a thorough drawing and demonstrate how to use elements in a detailed design. EIWAA Oil and Gas Services offers Lifting Training and certification services, Brazing Certification Services & other safety training and certification courses along with welder skill assessment.


Welder qualification testing is a formal assessment process that evaluates a welder’s skills, knowledge, and performance in specific welding procedures and standards. Welder Qualification test & NDT Training and certification courses are conducted according to industry codes and standards such as those established by the American Welding Society (AWS), ASME, BS EN, or API. Welder qualification tests typically involve welding a test coupon that is then subjected to various mechanical and visual inspections to determine conformance with specified criteria. Upon successful completion of welder training and qualification testing, welders may receive certifications or qualifications that validate their competency and proficiency in specific welding processes and materials.
