Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1. Supersedes and is equivalent to MEM05025C Perform welding/fabrication inspection

Application

This unit of competency defines the skills and knowledge required to perform welding/fabrication inspection by selecting, conducting or verifying appropriate non-destructive tests, establishing and validating welding procedures, ensuring quality assurance is carried out and monitoring procedures.

It applies to welding inspection based on knowledge of welding science and metallurgy, mechanical properties of welded joints, heat treatment procedures and national and technical standards. Test procedures and the range of this standard are determined by applicable Australian and/or international standards.

Where the performance of non-destructive testing is required the appropriate units should also be selected.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.

Assessment requirements

Modification History

Release 1. Supersedes and is equivalent to MEM05025C Perform welding/fabrication inspection

Performance Evidence

Evidence required to demonstrate competence in this unit must be relevant to and satisfy the requirements of the elements and performance criteria on at least two (2) occasions and include:

  • following work instructions, standard operating procedures (SOPs) and safe work practices
  • organising/conducting appropriate non-destructive tests or verifying results of previous test procedures
  • establishing and validating welding procedures by interpreting joint design specification, organising a test piece, interpreting the results and preparing a report identifying action to be taken
  • ensuring quality assurance procedures are carried out, including checking identification (material test certification numbers), movement and document material through workshop in-site
  • carrying out final inspection of fabrications, including material forming and dimensional checks against specifications
  • maintaining and reviewing quality records to ensure compliance.

Knowledge Evidence

Evidence required to demonstrate the required knowledge for this unit must be relevant to and satisfy the requirements of the elements and performance criteria and include knowledge of:

  • safe welding practices and procedures and use of personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • types of non-destructive tests, their application and procedures
  • welding specifications and procedures for the given weld
  • tests/checks to be conducted
  • arithmetic operations, formulae and calculations for testing welding/fabrications
  • procedures for:
  • initiating the weld tests and obtaining previous weld tests
  • verifying/amending previously established weld test procedures
  • documenting welding procedures and preparing a weld test piece
  • documenting/recording the movement of material through the workshop and reasons why this is necessary
  • transferring material test certification numbers
  • identifying consumables and reasons for marking consumables for identification purposes
  • using and storing consumables and the consequences of inappropriate use and/or storage of consumables
  • maintaining welding quality records
  • reasons for any identified discrepancies between previous and current weld tests
  • effects of testing procedures on test results
  • parameters and variables affecting the performance of the weld with respect to specifications
  • tools, equipment, techniques and procedures necessary to check each variable, form and dimensions of the welded components
  • tools, equipment, techniques and procedures to initiate, carry out, obtain and report the prescribed tests results
  • discrepancies between the test results and weld specifications and remedial action to be taken to return welds produced to specification
  • reasons and methods for correctly marking/identifying weld materials
