Tacoma Project

Project Overview

JaeBow conducted significant work for our client in Tacoma, USA. To develop a training philosophy which includes; an Assessment and Training strategy for existing workers to address the lack of skills and knowledge.

JaeBow visited Tacoma USA for 3 weeks to conduct the Audit and the agreed training program for 12 existing workers (welders)


Our Goal was to enable the participants to develop the relevant knowledge to apply to the advanced welding skills. This knowledge would also assist them to interpret information to apply known solutions to a variety of predictable problems.

The practical program consisted of a practical assessment to evaluate the current level of skills, training in Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW), Flux Cord Arc Welding (FCAW), Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) followed by assessment in SMAW and FCAW which included both destructive and non-destructive testing.

Success Factors


To further develop the advanced welders there is a requirement to develop and deliver training in all welding processes to include the following.
