Welding Aware

How Safe are Your Welded Projects?

You may be PERSONALLY LIABLE for the Welding in your projects.

AWS’ Weld Aware training for Engineers & Supervisors may save you from legislated penalties, expensive cost over-runs or dangerous accidents resulting from failed and sub-standard welding in your projects.

Weld Aware courses are customised for Engineering staff, Project Managers and Business Owner/Managers.


Suited to Owner/Managers and non-technical Executives, this short course is designed for non-welders to learn weld fundamentals while referring to current Australian standards for safety and compliance.

This one-day course covers:

  • joining processes and variable conditions
  • the types of welding
  • ‘checklists’ that have to be completed before selecting a particular process.

The advantages and consequences of an inappropriate weld will be examined through a series of case studies.

There is also a practical basic welding session.

Modules covered:

• Evolution of material joining
• Process and principles of welding
• Basics of welding (practical)
• Process selection
