    This branch talk is organised specifically for members of the Teesside and Northumbria branches of the Welding Institute. Training providers and assessors are also very much welcome to attend.

    Overview: End-point assessment (EPA) tests the knowledge, skills and behaviours that an apprentice or trainee has gained during their training. Unique to each standard, EPA demonstrates the competence of the applicant in their role and is very much valued by current and future employers. This talk will explain the how, why and what of EPA and its practical application.

    Materials Technical Group: Metallurgical Impact of Minor Elements in Steel Welds

    The properties of steels and steel welds are influenced by many factors. Certain elements when present can punch well above their weight. In many cases these effects are well understood and are used to positive effect. However the mechanisms and trends can be complicated and consequently pitfalls can and do arise.

    This webinar will focus on elements in steels that are present in small quantities but whose impact can be highly significant with problems often only come to light at the stage of weld procedure qualification or worse still, during construction or service.

    This is a London Branch event organised on behalf of London Branch members. Other members are very welcome to register for this talk. Non-Members are also welcome to join us, subject to space.

    Overview: Welding procedure and welder qualification testing is commonplace within many industry sectors. The lecture will focus on the use of the Welding Procedure Specification (WPS), the Welding Procedure Qualification Record (WPQR) and the Welder Qualification Test Certificate (WQTC) and will be of specific interest to those who already have exposure to welding procedures and welder qualification testing, or will do so as part of their work.

    This presentation provides examples of, and answers to, some of the common misdemeanors that are found when managing such documentation. It highlights some of the common errors, inadvertent omissions and routine mistakes that are found when such documents are scrutinised in the field.

    The Welding Procedure Qualification Record is sometimes received from the Inspection Body or the Examiner but is assumed to be compliant and is not cross-checked by the Fabricator. What checks should be made?

    The pitfalls of not scrutinising the documentation will be illustrated with some real-world examples of errors related to the range of qualification, the testing and test results.

    The Welder Qualification Test Certificate has a “range of qualification” which in principle is similar to that of the WPS or WPQR. The presentation explores the limitations and conflicts between the qualification standard versus those of the production application. The requirements for verifying the WQTC and the impact this has on the validity of the certificate is also discussed

    Speaker:  Mark Cozens (Weld-Class Solutions Ltd)

    Speaker Biography: Mark Cozens CEng, FWeldI, C-IWE C-EWE is a Chartered Engineer with over 45 years involvement in the technology associated with welding and fabrication.

    NDT and Condition Monitoring Technical Group: Enhancing the Inspection Process using Advanced NDT Methods

    In recent years there have been significant developments in technology which allow considerably increased performance of NDT methods, in terms of both the ability to detect imperfections and of efficiency of the inspection process. This has largely been enabled by the application of digital technology. While these developments are familiar to NDT professionals, it is not necessarily the case that those responsible for specifying the inspections to be used during the fabrication process of for ensuring fabrication quality are up to speed with the benefits that these advancements allow.

    The aim of this meeting is to present the benefits of a variety of advanced NDT systems and methods and how they may be used to improve the efficiency of inspections both during fabrication and in-service. It is aimed at welding engineers, those involved in ensuring fabrication quality, project engineers responsible for specifying NDT requirements and maintenance engineers.
