AWS Centre of Excellence

AWS Centre of Excellence (AWS CE) is a dynamic Registered Training Organisation (RTO), providing quality programs in a supportive yet challenging environment.

We aim to develop the capability and competency of students to achieve their career goals and raise the level of professionalism in the engineering and metal fabrication industry.

Industry Recognised Training

These courses are not constructed in accordance with the AQF, but are drawn upon our wealth of knowledge and experience and the needs of those within the industry, while still retaining high training standards as an RTO

AICIP In Service Inspection

Our In Service Inspection Workshop is our most popular course. This intensive 9-day workshop will prepare students to confidently undertake the AICIP (Australian Institute for the Certification of Inspection Personnel) examination to become an In Service Inspector. Our success rate is above 90% and feedback is outstanding.

AICIP Senior In Service Inspection

Our Senior In Service Inspection Workshop is also in preparation for an AICIP exam, but is a higher level for existing Inspectors who wish to advance their skills and career with an advanced qualification.

Weld Aware Courses

Designed for the working professional, the industry experts at AWS have developed a series of three Short Course modules to provide a platform to enhance productivity through a better understanding of welding and weldability in the Australian context. Executives, senior engineers and recent graduates have the opportunity to run through a series of
theory-based modules punctuated with case studies.

Customised Welder Training

AWS CE’s custom training and qualification packages are designed to suit the needs of clients and are recognised within the industry as proof of valued skills at a high standard. We train welding personnel in pipe welding (ASME), pressure vessels (AS/NZS1210), structural steel fabrication (AS/NZS1554), and API tank welding among others, using exotic materials such as aluminium, stainless steel, duplex, super duplex and titanium.

New Advanced Welding Technologies – RMD & STT (Modified Short Arc)

Our experience in specialised welding techniques has paved the way for our workshops on Modified Short Arc Welding. We can up-skill welders for use on popular welding equipment such as the Lincoln STT (Surface Tension Transfer) and the Miller PipeWorx RMD (Regulates Metal Disposition), systems to keep you and your business up to date with the latest in welding technology.
