Since 1977 the national Welding Inspection School (NWIS) has served the Oil and Gas industry by conducting training programs to more than 20,000 attendees representing most of the major companies.

The welding inspection course for "Pipeline Construction and In-Service welding" leads to a Certified Pipeline Welding Inspector's Certificate (CPWI).

Our schools are for inspectors, welders, engineers, superintendents, managers and others involved in the construction of pipelines and plants.

Your consideration of our training programs is very much appreciated. Each class provides a certification in the respective subject.  As we have done in the past, classes can be tailored to your company needs.
