For Training Schools

The WeldCraft-Pro underwater welding course uses a well proven, detailed documented methodology to teach, utilising our professional teaching materials, expertise and accreditation, but using your own approved instructor(s). This allows you to run a recognised and verified welding programme delivered through your staff, which results in internationally recognised certification issued under our ABS Maritime Academy and EAL Approved Test Centre Status.

If you are a commercial diver interested in underwater welding we have a course brochure and the syllabus available, and you can learn more about the course on the Underwater Welding page. See the list of approved training centres to find your nearest.
