Training

PIPA does not provide training however, a number of our members do. Below is a list of training providers for you to contact.

When and why should reaccreditation take place?

PIPA supports reaccreditation every 2-3 years. This should occur to ensure

  • the welder is kept up to date with current industry standards and welding procedures and;
  • that high standards are maintained by the welder.
