Title European Training Programme for Completing the requirements for Quality Welding under Standard Series EN-ISO 3834
Project Number 2009-1-ES1-LEO05-10379
Project Type Transfer of Innovation
Marketing Text The objectives originally proposed in the project "Harmonising training of personnel involved in the management and control of welding process, using as input the series of standards ISO 3834 (Quality requirements for fusion welding of metallic materials), through the realization of a sector to define the training profiles required by such personnel "to carry out the creation of a Web page and the development of teaching materials for use and implementation in the different vocational training systems.
Summary This project, as originally specified in its proposal, which aims to harmonize the training of personnel involved in the management and control of welding process in the industrial manufacturers across various European countries, one of the needs of business, implementation and application of EN ISO 3834. Once the project and prepared the various manuals to be used, these must be transferred to the different levels responsible for the national vocational training systems, both in educational administration as labor administration, to be implemented in various programs training, to do the work they have to perform each of the partners is very important because they include members of professional welding sector, which include in their training, and their actions accreditation people in this sector, and other partners from the regional administrations of education and employment, which will be responsible for implementing them in training programs for which they are responsible, which will ensure uniformity in the training of all sector personnel and welding personnel and organizations dedicated to training in this sector, thereby achieving the transparency and recognition of qualifications and skills through training activities to develop with this group.
Processes such as welding are usual used on many products manufacturing.So, its very important to ensure that these processes are implemented of the most effectively way and the suitable controls are applied at all aspect of the operation.On a product, the quality can´t be inspected, this one should be inclued on the product. In order to during the manufacturing and the services the products are free form problems, it´s necessary to establish controls from the design stage, the materials selections, manufacturing ant its inspections.
A manufacturer usally should provide information with which it is possible to verify, or support, that the manufacturing is carried on a aceptable way for the use of the final product. Several times, this product should be accepted by a third body.
The suitable quality requeriments on fusión welding processes are indicated on ISO 3834 standard.This standar has been prepared so that:
• it´s indepent from the product manufactured.
• it defines quality requeriments for welding in workshop or on-site welding;
• it provides a guideline in order to describe the capacity of the manufacturer for to produce constructions which fulfill the requeriments that have been indicated.
These reasons are enough in order to demostrate that the staff who are involved on the metalic materials fusión welding have to be educated on to implement and to apply ISO 3834 on their companies.
One of the most common needs of companies is the development and implementation of ISO 3834.It's a great problem because they know that their customers can be specified in contract documents that the manufacturer demonstrates its competence by compliance with ISO 3834.
Training is a main ítem for the competitiveness of companies when customer needs and new technologies change quickly and competitors grow indefinitely. Therefore, the mentioned problem can be solved through training of personnel involved in the management and control of welding process. This training is based on the standard series EN-ISO 3834 "Quality requirements for fusion welding of metallic materials, in order to define the profiles of this personnel and their training needs.
This project in addition to supporting the certification of companies according to ISO 3834, supports the participants in training and continuing training in the acquisition and use of knowledge, skills and qualifications to facilitate personal development.
