Statement of Attainment in Welding to AS1796 Certification 1-9
Welding to AS1796 Certification 1-9 course details
Course description and aims
This course is designed for experienced welders working or seeking employment
in the manufacture or repair of boiler, pressure vessel, pressure piping or
high quality welded applications.
You will develop the theory and practical skills required to meet the assessment
requirements specified in Australian Standard 1796-2001 which will (depending
upon the 1-9 welding certificate undertaken) be certified to weld high quality
applications on plain carbon and/or low alloy steel plate and pipe sections.
This course can be delivered and assessed on-the-job, off-the-job or a blend
of both options.
The duration of this program of study will vary depending on the competency
unit(s) and/or welding certificate 1-9 undertaken.
Course outcomes and careers
Completion of competency standards units from this course will enhance your
career progression under the Federal Metal and Engineering Industries Award.
The entry requirements for students in this Statement of Attainment requiring
a welding certificate/s 1-9 are clearly stated in Section 2 & 3 'Pre-Examination
Requirements' in Australian Standard 1796-2001 'Certification of Welders and
Students requiring entry would normally be expected to be working as a welder or
seeking employment as a welder in a boiler, pressure vessel, pressure piping
industry or in an enterprise where high quality welding is carried out.
On completion of this Statement of Attainment students may proceed to higher
level qualifications within this training package as explained in Section 7.1
of this document.
Those students who wish to seek recognition for a specialist welding
certificate/s 1-9 as specified in Section 1 of AS1796 will need to successfully
complete the TAFE Plus Statement 17622 Assessment for AS1796 Welding
Certificates 1-9. Statement 17622 is an Assessment Program that enables
students to seek mutual recognition from the WTIA for a given certificate/s.
When you have completed this course you will be eligible to receive the unit/s
of competence and granted a welding certificate 1-9 as defined in Australian
Standard 1796-2001. You will also be eligible to enrol in other courses in the
Metal and Engineering Training Package MEM05.
This Statement of Attainment is designed for people who are employed as Welders
or who are seeking employment as a certified welder in a pressure vessel,
pressure piping or an allied industry where high level welding competence is
The units of competency contained in this Statement of Attainment program
