Companies are always on the lookout for highly qualified welders. Good training is therefore crucial. That is why we offer support for both college tutors and students.
Welded parts assessment
One option is the assessment of welded parts. We examine parts welded at college using visual, destructive and non-destructive means in accordance with applicable standards (EN ISO 9606-1 and ISO 5817).
The college tutors are given a detailed report following this, advising the quality level achieved as well as any errors observed.
Has the student achieved the right level? In which case they get a report confirming the same details as a welding certificate.
Any college in the Flemish Brabant province (full-time, part-time or special needs secondary education [BUSO]) with a welding course qualifies for reimbursement of costs from the Flemish Brabant RTC (regional technology centre). For colleges in Antwerp, welding workpieces are paid for by the FTMA (Fund for the Metal Sector in Antwerp).
Brabant welds, everyone wins
The Flemish Brabant RTC gives young welders a helping hand. The “Brabant welds, everyone wins” project arms year 5 welders in BSO and BUSO-ABO (secondary vocational education and special needs secondary education-general business foundation) with an EN ISO 9606-1 certificate in fillet welding – even before work placement. Students graduate with one (or more) certificates in the bag. They are therefore ready straight away for the job market.

Year 7 students can even attend an actual training week with us. The objective is to obtain as high a welding certificate and international IW diploma as possible. Take a look at the Flemish Brabant ITC website for more information.
Special needs welding: a special project financed through INOM for young people in special needs education.
Students in special needs education OV3 have the option of taking a continuation course. They get an international welding certificate conforming to EN ISO 9606-1 following this course.
Young people can distinguish themselves by doing this. – which makes for a very positive and motivating learning environment. Moreover, this certificate reinforces prospects for young people in the job market. It is a stimulus to aim for even higher welding qualifications afterwards.
