Course programme

Wet welding is now quite common and represents an important and dependable underwater construction and repair technique.

Industry Standards:
Underwater welding codes have been defined and refined during the last 30 years through the work of the AWS, ADC, commercial diving companies, the US Navy, and commercial dive schools.

Just as the AWS provides technical specifications for surface welding, their Standard D3.6 provides engineers and contractors with information and technical specifications to determine what type of weld to use and how to qualify it. AWS D3.6 describes four types of underwater welds that provide the range of quality and properties currently produced by application of the various methods.

The specifications define criteria for properties to be adhered to during welding qualifications and present weld soundness requirements that must be verified in the construction operations. Each weld type must meet all the criteria specified for its class.

The Professional Diving Academy offers the WeldCraft-Pro® underwater welding course. The only accredited, externally verified training course to issue international welding qualifications to AWS D3.6 and/or ISO 15618-1 by the UK’s leading engineering awarding-body; EAL Awards.

The WeldCraft-Pro® underwater welding programme is now accredited through Speciality Welds Ltd (approved test centre), by EAL (EMTA Awards), part of SEMTA - Sector Skills Council for Science, Engineering and Manufacturing Technologies, the UK’s leading awarding body for engineering qualifications. This accreditation provides independent, quality assured, audited recognition of the training programme, thus, making it the only externally awarded wet welding training programme to issue internationally recognised qualifications, anywhere in the world.

Training is based on an 80 hour syllabus, split over two phases (dry and wet). The course is open to both non-welders and welders alike and follows the International Institute of Welding (IIW) syllabus 570-01 for fillet welder – plate.
