How long does it take to become an underwater welder?
Our intensive 12-day course which consists of a series of practical and theoretical studies and assignments will lead up to an end-of-course examination and a welder qualification test.
Our instructors are experienced and certified professionals with many years of field experience.
The closely supervised training is designed to develop skills necessary to produce high-quality welds both above and below water.
Underwater welding creates a picture of a Shield Metal Arc welder working at depth. This is known as “wet welding.” The diver is wet, the repair is wet, the welding rod is wet. This is a very common method of underwater welding, and is what our training focuses on.
Successful graduates will hold an internationally recognized wet welding qualification certificate.
