In construction work at Oil and gas company, we often install equipment tanks, pressure vessels, and pipeline or piping. the work that we often find is welding. workers involved in welding are welding coordinators, welding engineers, welding supervisors, welding inspectors, welder, and NDT inspector. a welding inspector is responsible for ensuring or maintaining the quality of welds or Quality Control (QC) of a welding product in accordance with specified standards such as ASME, AWS, API or JWES.

The task of welding inspectors in the field is not limited to inspections, but they also sometimes have the task of making welding maps, making reports, carrying out NDT tests such as Test Tests, UT and MT (if they have the ability or certificate in accordance with the test). Some companies want a welding inspector to function as an NDT inspector to improve efficiency and competitiveness. If you are interested in becoming a Welding Inspector, then you must be able to study metallurgy, basic mathematics and be able to understand terms in the Code or standard engineering. Other knowledge that you must learn is knowledge of Materials, Consumable, Welding Process, Heat treatment, Inspection, Drawing, Reporting and communication skills.

The welding inspector is assigned to 3 stages, namely before welding, during the welding process and after the welding process. The following details the duties and responsibilities of a welding inspector.
