Course Overview

This course is aimed at body repair technicians looking to achieve BS4872 and BS1140 Welding Certification.

Welding Competence & Compliance update

From the end of March 2014, only ATA AOM-009 will be accepted as proof of welding competence for ATA Panel.

For standards such as PAS 125, a proof of welding competence is required.

Traditionally, proof of current welding competence, for those looking to take ATA Panel, can be demonstrated by two methods; ATA Assessed Outcome Module (AOM) 009 or the BS Weld tests (BS1140 and BS4872). However, from the end of March 2014 only ATA AOM-009 will be accepted as proof of welding competence for ATA Panel.

ATA AOM-009 is an industry recognised proof of welding competence. The single certificate accreditation requires an individual to undertake a practical assessment to demonstrate their competence in welding.

  • Health and safety implications
