hi guys

I have a doubt

one welder qualified for the GTAW process and GTAW+SMAW combination process. Can I use the welding report/NDT report done by the GTAW+SMAW for the welder continuity renewal after 6 months ( For both GTAW, GTAW+SMAW)

RE: hi guys I have a doubt one we

I have already answered your question on another post.
You really need to read the code and learn.
If English is not your first language you need to tell us when you ask your questions.
I will be much more willing to help someone who doesn't understand the code due to the English rather than someone too lazy to look for themselves,

QW-322.1 Expiration. The qualification of a welder
or welding operator for a process remains valid provided
no more than 6 months have passed since the welder or
welding operator last used that process.

If your welder has used both processes then both welder qualifications are extended for 6 months

Thanks DekDee


RE: hi guys I have a doubt one we

Dear DekDee

One more clarification requires for this. Really sorry, I have some confusion
is it acceptable to renew the GTAW qualification card (JCC) and GTAW+SMAW qualification (JCC) After 6 months with a welding report made by the combination process GTAW+SMAW? I don't have a even single welding report for GTAW.
