Welding with Structural Integrity Experts: A Six-Webinar Series

Welding is integral in the construction, maintenance, repair, and compliance of power plants everywhere.

Your understanding of welding processes and programs is essential as you interact with these activities throughout the site. Our webinar series is your opportunity to gain a broader understanding of welding and to increase effective communication among site welding and non-welding personnel. Nuclear welding, defined as a special processes under federal law, is also key to plant compliance.

Structural Integrity's Welding series starts with the fundamentals, building a solid foundation to move through the variety of weld types, processes and techniques.

Who should attend this series: Design, program and component engineers, maintenance and system engineers, as well as anyone interested in a fundamental, practical understanding of nuclear welding.
