Australian Manufacturing Workers' Union



Welding Certification Expressions of Interest

AMWU welding testing & certification centre

Are you a boilermaker interested in getting tested and certified at the new AMWU welding testing centre? 

Expressions of interest being taken now! Sign up below.

The union’s welding campaign has entered an exciting and critical new phase, as we prepare to launch a welding testing centre to help unemployed metalworkers receive welding accreditation to help boost their job prospects.

The union will shortly be launching the pilot welding testing regime for members to help them prove that they are fulfilling the increased skilled and standards expectations of the industry.

The union has been campaigning to dramatically improve welding standards on Victorian construction sites, to improve safety on large construction projects and to ensure structural integrity by making sure welding work is done properly by ticketed, qualified AMWU members.

Already, through the work of our welding inspectors, organisers and delegates, we have seen qualified AMWU members brought onto sites to fix shoddy welding work.

If you are a boilermaker who would like to register your interest in welding tests and certification against the Australian Standards by the AMWU, please sign up below or contact: 9230 5700
