EIWAA Oil and Gas Services is an approved Welder Training Institute that provides Welding Course and Third-Party Welder Testing in Saudi Arabia. The purpose of the welding course is to familiarize students with the knowledge, welding skills, and welding career opportunities in the welding sector. 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. Students will be able to understand welding symbols from a thorough drawing and demonstrate how to use elements in a detailed design. There are several levels of welding certification services and 3rd Party Welding Test available in Saudi Arabia including TIG, Arc, and MIG/MAG 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.. All significant marine companies in Saudi Arabia can now qualify their welders as IACS Certified welders thanks to our public sessions. Welders are qualified at various levels in accordance with ARAMCO/IACS Standards through our third-party welder testing services. We have the approval of major oil and gas companies as third party welders at Oil and Gas Services. Based on both the PQR and WPS qualifications, welder ID cards and certificates will be issued.

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 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. Welder certifications demonstrate that a welder has met the requirements for performing welding work in accordance with industry standards and quality assurance protocols. Certified welders are often in high demand in industries such as manufacturing, construction, aerospace, automotive, and infrastructure. Welder qualification testing ensures that welders possess the expertise and capability to produce high-quality welds that meet industry standards and specifications. Trained and qualified welders adhere to safety protocols, welding procedures, and regulatory requirements to ensure workplace safety and compliance with industry regulations. Welder certifications and qualifications enhance a welder’s credibility, marketability, and earning potential within the welding profession. Welder training and qualification testing services are essential for developing skilled and competent welders who can meet the demands of the welding industry.


Arc welding procedure qualification is a formal process that evaluates the capability of a welding procedure to produce sound welds in accordance with specific welding codes and standards. Qualifying an arc welding procedure involves conducting tests to demonstrate that the welding procedure is capable of meeting the requirements for weld quality, mechanical properties, and performance criteria established by industry standards organizations such as the American Welding Society (AWS) or the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). Here are general steps on how to do arc welding procedure qualification:

Determine Applicable Standards: Before initiating the procedure qualification process, determine the specific welding code or standard that applies to the project or industry you are working in. Different codes and standards may have specific requirements for welding procedures, materials, joint design, and testing methods.

Develop a Welding Procedure Specification (WPS): Prepare a welding procedure specification (WPS) that outlines the essential variables of the welding procedure, such as welding process, welding parameters, welding positions, filler materials, preheat and post-weld heat treatment requirements, etc. The WPS should be in compliance with the applicable welding code or standard.

Welding Procedure Qualification Record (PQR): To qualify a welding procedure, a Welding Procedure Qualification Record (PQR) must be created. The PQR is a document that records the results of welding procedure qualification tests, including mechanical testing, visual examination, and non-destructive testing. The PQR serves as the documented evidence of the welding procedure’s capability to produce acceptable welds.

Welder Qualification: Before conducting the procedure qualification tests, ensure that the welders who will be performing the tests are qualified per the welding procedures and standards. Welders must demonstrate their skill and proficiency in welding by passing a welder qualification test in accordance with the WPS.

Welding Procedure Qualification Tests: Conduct welding procedure qualification tests in accordance with the WPS and the requirements of the applicable welding code or standard. Common tests for arc welding procedure qualification may include,

Welding of test coupons: Weld test plates or pipes using the specified welding parameters and techniques outlined in the WPS.

Mechanical testing and Non destructive Testing: Perform mechanical tests on the welded test coupons to evaluate the weld’s mechanical properties, such as tensile strength, bend tests, impact toughness, etc. NDT Inspection shall be Radiography Testing, Magnetic Particle Inspection etc.

Visual examination: Inspect the welded test coupons visually to ensure that the welds meet the acceptance criteria for surface quality, weld penetration, weld size, and discontinuities.
