Combined EUSR - Electro Fusion & Butt Fusion Welding

About Combined EUSR - Electro Fusion & Butt Fusion Welding

This course is broken down and designed for candidates based on experience levels. Those candidates possessing little to no experience of welding Polyethylene Pipe by the means of Electro Fusion & Butt Fusion welding processes should select the 4 day course.  Experienced Electro Fusion & Butt Fusion Welders seeking certification or a refresher qualification should select the 2 day course.

Our safety training is mapped to both National Occupational Standards and EUSMUN10 (aligned to NCO).

Techniques are applicable to both types of materials, which are PE80 (MDPE) and PE100 (HDPE or HPPE). Materials are applicable to pipe sizes from 20mm to 710mm. Larger diameters should focus on manufacturer guidance and familiarisation may be required. For Butt Fusion Welding materials are applicable to all sizes of pipe for both service and mains.

The course(s) can accommodate up to 8 delegates per day.
