National Welding Inspection School
This post is for all my Inspectors, Chief Inspectors and the wanna-be-ones too! I highly recommend this program and taking the time out of your busy schedules to obtain this certification. Not many of you have heard of this certification, but it is nationally recognized and a must have for the Elite Inspectors in the oil & gas fields. The CPWI stands for Certified Pipeline Welding Inspector... can you imagine your on a pipeline with a CWI and he wants to make your pipeline a "clean zone" like the refinery or plant he just worked in. Well, the CPWI is a more focused certification for those pipelines that so need an inspector with the understanding and knowledge of the pipeline in all its rustic dirtiness! Sorry all you new CWI's... its' not a clean room! With specific regulations and codes that must be adhered too, I find the National Welding Inspection School and John to be at the fore-front of this battle with EPA and environmentalist to produce safe, sturdy and superb pipelines. Check 'em out... don't trust my humble opinion.
