About 3G and 6G Tests

3g Test: This test is designed mainly to enhance the knowledge and attitudes in Manual Arc Welding (MMAW) in accordance with the industry standards. It is mainly covered core competencies such as setting-up equipment, Preparing weld metals, fitting up weld metals welding carbon steels and repairing welds.

6g Test: The ability of a welder will follow instructions and verification of a person’s skills are important factors in ensuring the quality of the welded product. The testing of a welder’s skill in accordance with this International Standard depends on the welding techniques and conditions used, in which uniform rules are complied with and standard test pieces are used. The principle of this the welder’s approval test is that a qualification test qualifies a welder not only for the conditions used in the test, but also for all other conditions which are considered easier to weld in accordance with this International Standard. When qualifying welders, the emphasis is placed on the welder’s ability manually to manipulate the electrode, welding torch or welding blowpipe, thereby producing a weld of acceptable quality such as oil rigs, pipeline and such heavy industry.
