Introduction

IIW India's National Welding Training and Certification Scheme ( NWTCS ) has been prepared to meet the demand of industry for welders, trained and certified to a level of competency commensurate with the requirements of any of the welder qualification and certification standards or codes i.e. IS:7310 / IS:817, IBR, ISO:9606-1, BSEN:287 and ASME Sec IX / AWS D1.1. and many other.

The scheme is also designed for large number of pre-school leaving candidates and dropouts who are unable to continue with formal education and provides an opportunity to build alternative careers. The National Welding Training and Certification Scheme (NWTCS) will make the qualified welders better acceptable to industry all over India and open up opportunity and mobility throughout the country. The scheme covers requirements for 'Certification' and / or 'Training & Certification' only and is operated by the IIW-INDIA.
