EWF/IIW Welding Coordination Diploma

TWI Certification Ltd (TWI CL), as the UK Approved Nominated Body (ANB) for both the European Federation for Welding, Joining and Cutting (EWF), and International Institute of Welding (IIW), is responsible for the implementation of the EWF/IIW Welding Coordination Diploma and issuing qualification to candidates who have met the relevant entry requirements and successfully passed the required examinations.  

EWF/IIW Welding Coordination diplomas are widely accepted by employers as high quality vocational education in welding engineering.

These unique qualifications will place holders above much of the competition, giving customers and employers high confidence in their knowledge and understanding of welding. The EWF/IIW Welding Coordination Diplomas are excellent educational programmes, that ensure individuals have the relevant knowledge to perform welding coordination activities at the Specialist (EWS/IWS), Technologist (EWT/IWT) or Engineer (EWE/IWE) level.

Within the UK the course is provided by TWI Training and Examinations and details of the course structure and entry requirements can be found on their website. Once a candidate has met the relevant entry requirements and passed the required examinations (in the specified order), they can apply to TWI CL to have their Diploma issued.

Appeals and Complaints

Appeals against an examination result or failure to meet entry requirements can be made in writing to the Governing Board and should be sent with any relevant supporting information. An Appeals Committee will be appointed and the evidence reviewed, and the outcome communicated to the appellant by the Scheme Manager.

Appeals against an examination result must be made within four (4) weeks of receipt of the examination result. To prevent misuse of the appeals system, an appeal fee is charged which is reimbursed should the appeal be upheld.

The Scheme Manager will ascertain what activities the complaint relates to and will decide the appropriate course of action.
