Uttoron organised the first task analysis workshop in Chittagong with the industry experts to develop a Competency Standard (CS) for introducing training on the Welding Inspection occupation. This is another pioneering initiative by Uttoron in collaboration with the National Skills Development Authority (NSDA) that is expected to impact the national skills development sector. Demand for certified welding inspectors is very high in industries. However, there is no such certification course to become a welding inspector in Bangladesh; therefore, if someone is interested in becoming a welding inspector, they must travel abroad to receive such a certification course. Understanding the high demand in the market, Uttoron approached NSDA to develop the CS for Welding Inspector training, and NSDA approved the initiative. This initiative will create scopes for additional jobs in various industries that require welding quality control and inspection. Eight experts from different leading industries such as Bureau Veritas, SEIP, Western Marine Services Ltd., ABC Bangladesh-Turkish Technical School etc. participated in the day-long workshop to ensure that the content of the CS is relevant to industry needs.
