QCI Training

Current certified AISC fabricators and erectors may have noticed the auditor looking into your QC Inspector’s (QCI) knowledge, education, and experience. This training is designed to support you to pass this part of the audit successfully!

Our QCI training is targeted for your company; in addition to your company’s inspection requirements, our trainers will go into greater depth on welding and bolting inspection and tie these inspection tasks to AISC’s Chapter N (Quality Control and Quality Assurance).

Our professional development and high-quality training event will include a certification for completion of training.

What Our Clients Say

Fabricators, erectors and contractors know: Atema is the best AISC certification solution

When we started looking for certification assistance, we could not find anyone to help us with all the requirements.  One company could help with a bolt procedure, another with a welding procedure. Finally we found Atema and they were the only company who could take us through the whole entire process.  They understood all the requirements for certification and had the experience to create our system the right way.

… I want to say that I am impressed with the knowledge that  both of you have, and we are very happy with this final document. This is so much more practical and understandable than our previous version.  Also, I think that the management team has a much better overall understanding of what is expected from us to be AISC certified.

Margaret Wagner, Rast Iron Works

…Wanted to share with you the great news that during the last days of December we received the AISC Erection Certification (including both, Seismic and Metal Deck endorsements)! Thanks to you and to the Atema team we were able to prepare and go through this on-site audit with zero CARS!
