Welding Appreciation Courses

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.
Welding Appreciation courses are 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 and plant inspection. Both classroom and practical courses are available. These courses are designed to service all key industrial sectors including oil & gas, fabrication, construction, power, aerospace, automotive and manufacturing.

The Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB), Malaysia has approved these courses for the Contractor ‘Continuous Development Program (CCD)’ where points are awarded to employees of CIDB registered construction companies who attend these courses.
