What is the South­ern African In­sti­tute of Weld­ing?

CityPress - - Careers -

The South­ern African In­sti­tute of Weld­ing (SAIW) is a not-for­profit tech­ni­cal or­gan­i­sa­tion ded­i­cated to fur­ther­ing stan­dards in weld­ing fab­ri­ca­tion and re­lated tech­nolo­gies.

Es­tab­lished in 1948, it is a founder mem­ber of the In­ter­na­tional In­sti­tute of Weld­ing (IIW). The SAIW pro­vides train­ing pro­grammes, con­sul­tancy and in­dus­try sup­port ser­vices. Based in Joburg, with branches in Cape Town and Dur­ban, the in­sti­tute is ac­tive through­out south­ern Africa and also has ex­pe­ri­ence fur­ther afield, pre­dom­i­nantly in cen­tral Africa, the In­dian Ocean is­lands and the United Arab Emi­rates.

The SAIW of­fers a range of cour­ses in weld­ing tech­nol­ogy and non­de­struc­tive test­ing at its train­ing school in Joburg. It also con­ducts train­ing at venues across South Africa and in other coun­tries.

SAIW cour­ses are de­vel­oped and main­tained un­der the guid­ance of in­dus­try-based com­mit­tees, and pre­sented by qual­i­fied and ex­pe­ri­enced lec­tur­ers. All cour­ses com­ply with in­ter­na­tional stan­dards.

Train­ing fa­cil­i­ties in­clude a prac­ti­cal weld­ing school with in­di­vid­ual state-of-the-art weld­ing bays, and mod­ern and fully equipped class­rooms and lab­o­ra­to­ries.

SAIW Train­ing Ser­vices is an IIW-ap­proved train­ing body.

The SAIW has of­fered train­ing cour­ses for more than 30 years. An SAIW qual­i­fi­ca­tion has long been re­garded as the in­dus­try stan­dard in South Africa and also en­joys in­ter­na­tional recog­ni­tion.

An au­tho­rised na­tional body of IIW since 2003, the SAIW of­fers the full range of IIW qual­i­fi­ca­tions (en­gi­neer, tech­nol­o­gist, spe­cial­ist, prac­ti­tioner, welder and in­spec­tor). The SAIW also has strong af­fil­i­a­tions to lead­ing uni­ver­si­ties, such as Wits and the Univer­sity of Pre­to­ria.
