RECERTIFICATION OF WELDERS Only currently certified aeronautical welders may weld on aeronautical equipment. Initial certification is attained by satisfactory completion of Navy training course(s) N-701-0007 and/or N-701-0009, as applicable. Certification can also be obtained by documented satisfactory completion of equivalent training in accordance with Aeronautical and Support Equipment Welding Manual, NA 01-1A-34, and satisfactory completion of recertification testing. If proficiency is maintained, the recertification interval for IMA-level aeronautical equipment welders is 3 years. Maintaining proficiency requires documented frequency of use, as specified in NA 01-1A-34. Failure to maintain proficiency in any group(s) of metals will terminate current certification in that/those group(s). Recertification is normally accomplished by locally producing acceptable test welds and submitting those welds to the nearest authorized welding examination and evaluation facility. Examination and evaluation facilities must complete required testing of test weld specimens and provide test results and recertification documentation, as appropriate, to the affected welder’s command within 30 days of the test weld(s) receipt. Detailed procedures for obtaining test plates, production and submission of test welds, and documentation are contained in NA 01-1A-34. TYCOMs/ACCs may extend current certification of welders for a maximum of 90 days in cases where test welds have been submitted but results and recertification documentation have not been received from the cognizant examination and evaluation facility. Welders whose test specimens fail to meet minimum requirements are allowed one retest. This retest will require submission of a double set of test welds of the failed group(s) of metal(s) to the same examination and evaluation facility that failed the test welds first submitted. Welding examination and evaluation facilities will forward double sets of test plates to the failed welder’s command concurrently with the notification of failure. Retest test welds must be completed and submitted within 30 days of receipt of notification of failure of first test weld(s). Failure of any retest test welds to meet minimum requirements will require the welder to satisfactorily complete the Navy training courses N-701-0008/N-701-0010, as appli- cable, to recertify. Aeronautical equipment welders may weld only on equipment, components, and items manufactured from the group of metals for which they are currently certified and for which weld repairs are authorized by applicable technical publications or directives. Groups of metals Figure 15-20.—Welding Certification NAVAIR 13100/1). for which separate and distinct certification is required are specified in NA 01-1A-34. Separate certification is also required for oxyfuel brazing process. NA 01-1A-34 contains additional information and guidance relative to qualification, certification/recertifi- cation, and employment of aeronautical equipment welders. It is, however, a general series technical manual intended to be used in conjunction with the OPNAV 4790.2E and with specific maintenance/repair/overhaul manuals/engineering documents. In cases of conflict between NA 01-1A-34 and the OPNAV 4790.2E regarding certification/ recertification policy, the OPNAV 4790.2E takes precedence. QA/A is responsible for monitoring aeronautical equipment welder certification/recertification. Refer to the OPNAV 4790.2E for specifics. A Welding Certificate (Operator’s Card), NAVAIR 13100/1, will be issued for each material category in which the welder is qualified. The welding certificate will be filled out, dated, and signed by an authorized representative of an examination facility. Figure 15-20 provides a sample of the welding certificate. Figures 15-21 and 15-22 show a sample Welding Examination Record (NAVAIR 13100/2) and instructions. 15-14
