Course Information

coop opening times

Hydroweld provide our well established, unrivaled wet welder training courses at:  Hydroweld USA 'Underwater Technology and Training Centre' (UTTC) in Miami, Florida, USA.

The centre includes an indoor, 170m, 6m (20')diameter x 6m (20') deep, 170,000 liter (45,000 US gallon) (approx.), filtered and treated training and research tank.

The tank provides an outstanding controlled environment for a large range of underwater programmes including welding, hydroarc-gouging, cutting, welding procedures, welder qualifications and a variety of other equipment testing and training

Three permanent welding stations are installed in the tank, each fitted out with a adjustable framework which allows the student to manipulate the work piece in to any orientation required for all positional welding with a linear height range.

Training Tank

The welding stations are located next to three large observation port holes where the instructors have direct visual and audio communications with the student to monitor the students progress and provide real-time guidance and instruction.

The diving system comprises three surface supplied systems with the option of a forth system if required.  Low pressure (LP) air is provided as the main air supply with high pressure (HP) back up.  The system incorporates KM 37 helmets with hat mounted lighting.  All general diving equipment is provided with the exception of wet suits and booties which students are expected to provide themselves. 

During the course students will be expected to prep plates for welding to this end there is an element of plate preparation such as grinding and topside welding.  Although all of the PPE is provided, including, safety glasses, gloves, ear, protectors, dust masks, welding and grinding shields, goggles etc. students are expected to provide their own overalls and steel toe work boots.

The underwater welding system includes state of the art wet welding equipment and consumables.

The price of the courses includes all materials, consumables, testing and Lloyds witnessing, however, accommodation, travelling expenses, subsistence and personal expenses are not.  A light lunch is provided as is tea and coffee.

Triple welders training The course objective is to train professional qualified commercial divers in the art of wet welding who wish to pursue a career in wet welding or who want to improve on their current wet welding capabilities and gain a recognised wet welding qualification. Although no previous experience is required it is an advantage for students to have a practical back ground, preferably in construction or engineering that involved manual dexterity.

These wet welding courses are modular, with each module 10 days long.  They are intended to train professional divers up to the standard required to pass a Welder Performance Qualification (WPQ) to AWS D3.6 Code for Underwater Welding, class 'B' welds. The WPQ test is witnessed by Lloyds Register (LR).  LR are a major classification society and certification issued by them is generally accepted by other classification societies throughout the world.

Each module systematically guide students through various tasks designed to improve their wet welding skills and provide a sound foundation for the subsequent modules.  Each module is designed to develop the necessary skills which can aid the student when applied to more challenging positions and joint geometries.

The courses have been developed on a modular basis and on successful completion of the initial 10 day course students will be able to enroll on additional courses to further their skills in the 4F overhead position, 5F all positional pipe to plate or butt welds in all positions.

The courses are open to both individual commercial divers and diving contractors alike.  Commercial diving contractor who wish to sponsor a number of welder divers on a project specific wet welding course are welcome to discuss their individual requirements. These requirements may include the development and qualification of welding procedures or the use of their own procedures subject to them being within the scope of the training.
