Welder Training to Hose Master Fabricating Techniques

Send your welders to Hose Master’s Cleveland, Ohio headquarters for hands-on training according to Hose Master fabricating techniques with its team of ASME IX Certified welders. To qualify for this program, welders must have successfully completed at least a basic welder training class.

Completion of a Weld Training Questionnaire is required to determine welder’s skill level and number of days (1 – 3) needed for the training session. Please note that this course does not certify a welder but familiarizes them to Hose Master welding techniques.

Welder Evaluation Program

Fabricating distributor welders can send welded assembly samples to Hose Master for skill evaluation testing. If the assemblies pass the evaluation, a Certificate of Recognition will be issued. Distributors will also be provided the reason(s) for failure. Issued Hose Master Skill Evaluation Test certificates are valid for two years.

This program does not qualify or certify the welder, but recognizes their ability to fabricate assemblies to Hose Master Procedure EG190W.
