Do I get a Lloyds certification?
Currently there is a demand for Lloyds certification on underwater welding certificates.
Lloyds Register (LR) do not recognise training organisations or any other third parties, as there main focus is on research and education in science and egineering.
They will witness a specific weld, and give approval on Speciality Welds Weldcraft Pro certification. This is sufficient for any company to employ you as an underwater welder.
This will occur on test day and if the student passes, then he’ll get a Lloyds stamp on the certificate.
Remember there is not a ‘Lloyds’ ticket. A welder is approved against a standard; i.e: ISO, BSEN, BS, AWS, ASME.
Our internationally recognised wet welder training course last for 21, days and are intended to train professional divers up to the standard required to pass a Welder Performance Qualification (WPQ) to AWS D3.6M-10:2010 Class B and to ISO 15618-1:2002 Underwater Welding Code. The WPQ is witnessed by Lloyds Register (LR) who also issue the certification. LR are a major classification society and certification issued by them is generally accepted by other classification societies throughout the world.

We make use of AWS D3.6M-10:2010 Class B and/or ISO 15618-1:2002 underwater welding codes to pass a welder performance qualification (WPQ).
