WIM organises and conducts ‘Welding Appreciation’ courses with support from our affiliate company TWI, the world’s largest training organisation in welding, welding inspection and non-destructive testing.

Six 'Welding Appreciation' Courses have been designed for those who wants to have basic knowledge and understanding of

  • Arc welding processes
  • Quality assurance and control in welding
  • Welding metallurgy
  • Safety in welding & cutting processes
  • Blasting and Painting
  • Destructive and Non-destructive testing techniques
These courses are developed to service all key industrial sectors including oil & gas, fabrication, construction, power, aerospace, automotive and manufacturing.

Two of these courses have been approved by the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) for the 'Contractor Continuous Development' (CCD) program where points are awarded to employees of CIDB registered construction companies who attend these courses.
