A recognised Responsible Welding Coordinator training course, providing a Level 4 Award and Certificate Of
Verifiable Achievement from EAL, who are the awarding body operated by SEMTA (The Sector Skills Council for
Science, Engineering and Manufacturing Technologies).
Since the European standard EN 1090 became mandatory in 2014 for all structural fabricators, it has been a
mandatory requirement for each company to appoint a Responsible Welding Coordinator, who is responsible for
overseeing all factors affecting the quality-management system which governs their welding activities.
The Responsible Welding Coordinator, or ‘RWC’, is a role title which was introduced with EN ISO 14731, alongside
EN ISO 3834 and focuses on Quality Requirements for Fusion Welding. The EN1090 notifying bodies conduct
detailed interviews and assessments of the RWC as part of their annual audits, and achievement of this unique
Level 4 Award can demonstrate competence in this role, and help to prepare candidates for such interviews.
What does this qualification cover?
The Weldability Sif EAL level 4 course features a distance-learning component for underpinning theory, followed by an intensive 4-day classroom and workshop-based component focusing on :
• Welding Process Technology (MIG / FCAW / MMA / TIG)
• Welding Consumables & Materials
• Welding Metallurgy (C Mn / Steel / Stainless Steel / Aluminium)
• Welding Design (Joint details / Preparation)
• Welding Imperfections (Identifing causes, and taking remedial action)
• Inspection Techniques (Visual, NDT and destructive testing)
• Welding Procedure Qualifications (pWPS / WPQR)
• Welder / Welding Operator Qualifications
• Welding Quality Management Systems (EN ISO 3834)
• Welding Coordinator Duties (EN ISO 14731)
• Application Legislator Requirements (EN 1090)
Following a practical, verbal and written assessment, the successful candidates receive an EAL Certificate Of
Verifiable Achievement and a kit of useful document templates and RWC inspection tools.
Welding Coordinator Training Level 3
For those candidates wishing to achieve the level of Welding Coordinator (a supporting role reporting to the RWC), Weldability Sif also offer a shorter, 3-day course leading to an EAL Level 3 Award, from which future progression to RWC can be made.
Courses run bi-monthly for 1 week, January to November annually.
