DVS Certified Welder Training/Certification
Another successful DVS Welder Certification course was completed this Fall at Wegener Welding, LLC. For the 22nd year, a DVS Certified Instructor from SKZ (Southern German Technical Institute) has spent several weeks each year teaching these courses at Wegener’s Chicagoland facility.

These courses provide a unique opportunity to gain in-depth knowledge on thermoplastic hot gas hand welding, extrusion welding, pipe butt fusion, socket fusion, and electrofusion and offer optional certification according to DVS (German Welding Society). This certification finds acceptance worldwide as well evidenced by the recurring participation of international students. The one-week courses are designed so they are of benefit for anybody connected to the industry, whether it is relative newcomers to the thermoplastic welding field, experienced shop personnel, supervisors, engineers or company managers and/or owners.

The Trainer is a certified welding instructor from SKZ (Southern German Technical Institute) and he is assisted by Bryson Nash of Wegener Welding. The courses are purposely kept small to be able to give each student maximum time and attention.

Due to increased demand for high quality construction by certified personnel, Wegener has decided to continue offering these courses on a semi-annual basis in Spring and in Fall for the foreseeable future.
