IIW/EWF Diploma in Welding


An internationally recognised qualification supported by the International Institute of Welding
(IIW) and the European Federation for Welding, Joining and Cutting (EWF) for assessing the
competence of tasks and responsibilities during welding coordination (BS EN ISO 14731).
BS EN ISO 14731: 2006 Welding Coordination Tasks and Responsibilities, specifies that
responsible welding coordination personnel shall be able to demonstrate adequate general and specific
knowledge in welding and allied processes to perform these tasks. Such knowledge must be the result
of a combination of theory, training and experience. Personnel holding IIW/EWF Diploma are
qualified to perform welding coordination activities as described in ISO 14731 whose compliance is
required by BS EN ISO 3834 (Quality requirements for fusion welding of metallic materials) .
In its Part 1 (Criteria for the selection of the appropriate level of quality requirements), BS EN ISO
3834 states that in order to ensure sound and effective manufacturing, management needs to
understand and appreciate the sources of potential trouble and to implement appropriate procedures for
their control . This standard identifies measures applicable in different circumstances, being two of the
most representative contractual situations and assessment of welding quality performance
between customers, manufacturers and third parties. In consequence, the compliance of 14731
and 3834 are priorities in the success of any metallic welding-related business.

Course Outline
The IIW/EWF Diploma in Welding consists of three different levels specialist (foundation),
technologist (intermediate) and engineer (advanced) or IWS/EWS, IWT/EWT and IWE/EWE
respectively. Although the topics covered in each level are similar (as explained below) the depth and
breadth are progressively increased towards the engineer level. The goals of each level are in line with
the responsibilities outlined in BS EN ISO 14731.
Specialist (IWS/EWS)
Personnel with basic technical knowledge where the level of technical knowledge needs to be
sufficient for the planning, executing, supervising and testing of the tasks and responsibilities within a
limited technical field involving only simple welded constructions.
Technologist (IWT/EWT)
Personnel with specific technical knowledge where the level of technical knowledge needs to be
sufficient for the planning, executing, supervising and testing of the tasks and responsibilities in
welding fabrication within a selective or limited technical field.
Engineer (IWE/EWE)
Personnel with comprehensive technical knowledge where full technical knowledge is required for the
planning, executing, supervising and testing of all tasks and responsibilities in welding fabrication.

IIW/EWF Diploma in Welding


Modules

Each level (Specialist, Technologist and Engineer) consists of four modules:

Welding processes and equipment (WPE)


Materials and their behaviour during welding (MAB)
Design and construction (DAC)
Fabrication and applications engineering (FAA)

There are two supplementary modules only for the Specialist level:

Advanced welding processes and equipment (AWP)


Practical welding technology (PWT)

In summary, via the standard route, IWS/EWS requires completion of six modules, IWT/EWT of ten
and IWE/EWE of fourteen. The duration of each module is one week and finishes with an exam.
