Custom Welder Training & Qualifying Module


Working directly with the manufacturing client, IAI will assess the welding needs and requirements to develop a customized welder training and welder qualifying module that incorporates the specific processes and qualifications required by the company. These customized training courses range between three and five days long, based on individual company curriculum needs. Each session is typically held from 7:00AM - 3:00PM Monday - Friday.

Minimum of 4 and maximum of 8 participants.


Introduction to Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) Methods

Working directly with the manufacturing client, IAI will assess the needs and requirements to develop a customized Non-Destructive Testing training module that incorporates the specific processes used by the company. This introductory course will provide individuals with practical knowledge and hands on experience in the use of noninvasive techniques to determine the integrity of a material, component or structure or quantitatively measure some characteristics of that object. Students will learn about the testing of materials, for surface or internal flaws or metallurgical condition, without interfering in any way with the integrity of the material or its suitability for service. Training is available in 4 of the most common NDT methods; Visual Testing, Dye Penetrant Testing, Magnetic Particle Testing and Ultrasonic Testing.

Minimum of 4 and maximum of 8 participants.

Basics of theory and operations of machining equipment and procedures

$1725/participant /Text Book: $130/ NIMS Registration& (3) On-line Testing Fees: $145

This 60 hour course covers Workbench & Layout, Measurement, Materials & Safety, Drill Press I, Milling I, and Lathe Operations I. The course provides instruction on the theory and operation of drill presses, manual lathes, milling machines, and other machining tools. Students will receive training on drill bit sharpening, explanation of proper tap drill sizing, different thread pitches and tapping head experience. The lathe curriculum will cover facing, turning, boring and single point threading. Milling machine training will focus on squaring a vise, tramming heads, the use of edge finders, digital read-outs and proper block squaring. Hands-on projects, 3rd party inspection through our MET-TEC & on-line tests are the basis for instruction. Students can achieve up to 3- National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS) Level I Machinist credentials including Drill Press Skills I, Manual Milling Skills I and Lathe Operations I.

Theoretical and practical, classroom instruction and hands on experience


Aluminum’s high strength to weight ratio, low cost, and recycle ability, are some of the reasons that aluminum is being adopted as a material of choice. This class will include both the theoretical and practical, hands-on approach to the welding of aluminum alloys. The classroom instruction includes an understanding of the theory and general characteristics of the various aluminum alloys and tempers. This class is designed for a participant who already is or will be working with aluminum technology.

Working knowledge of visual representations of assemblies


This introductory Blueprint Reading Course will provide participants with a working knowledge of how to visualize object shapes and read a blueprint for size and location dimensions, symbols, mathematics notes and related welding and assembly information show on print. The practical activities in this course help participants develop the range of thinking required to assemble simple components and complex assemblies from welding prints.
