Weld Tests/ Coded Welder

Need a code for the Job?

Weld tests or Coded welder are becoming an increasingly popular requirement to qualify welders prior to their mobilisation to site. Weld tests can be completed under Kangaroo Training weld procedures, or the employer may choose to supply their own site-specific weld procedures for the candidate to follow. Once the candidate has completed their weld test to the required procedure, the piece is sent off for non-destructive testing. Results are usually received within 2-3 working days.

Weld tests can be completed at a cost of $425 per day for the welding bay hire, plus $275 per weld test being sent off for analysis. Please note that one of the NDT (X-ray, UT, PT, MT) is included in price and additional testing will cost more. Please note that the sourcing of exotic materials, specialised electrodes etc (if required) will incur additional costs.

AWCR Certification

The Australian Welder Certification Register (AWCR) is an initiative of the Weld Australia/ WTIA.

Weld Australia objectives are to:

  • Create welding jobs by increasing the efficiency and profitability of Australian industry and
  • Provide a framework for upskilling Australian welders and improving their employability


The AWCR was developed and is managed by the Welding Technology Institute of Australia. It provides a national framework for qualifying and testing welders to International Standard AS/NZS ISO 9606-1. It:

  • Allows qualified and certified Registered Welders (RW) to be able to work on any site without further testing resulting in a significant cost saving to industry.
  • Provides industry with access to a database of welders with up to date certification and details of their career history.
  • Generates data for a skills gap analysis which will allow the development of a detailed suite of training initiatives to upskill the workforce.
  • Runs on the WeldQ platform; a fully internet enabled cloud-based system with a supporting mobile app.
