KONAD WELDING ACADEMY is a welding institute with the sole aim of impacting specialized knowledge in different aspects of welding and welding Technology. The training and skills acquisition is structured in a simple rudimental manner so as to make the teaching and understanding of different aspects and stages easy for the Trainees. This simplified Teaching and learning process will make the Trainee understand the theory and practical of welding and fabrication as it applies to todays practice in Oil and Gas as well as in construction and Maritime.

Our Welding Program and practice is fashioned to meet the standards of the following:

  • Nigerian Institute of Welding(NIW).
  • International Institute of Welding (IIW).
  • American Welding Society(AWS).
  • Nigerian Content Division of NNPC.

In order to meet National and international Industrial demand, our programs are designed and structured to achieved training and teaching which is embedded in:

  • Quality control and Quality assurance.
  • Argon welding.
  • Certified Welders Inspectors(CWI).
  • Corrosion control.
  • Buth welding.
  • Pipe and pipeline Welding.


Course duration for most programs is between 6-12 months. However, training and certification can be achieved in shorter period on special arrangement.


  • Structural Welding.

Structural Welding involves erecting, joining, cuting, and repairing beams, girders, columns, and other structural components to form complete structures or frameworks. These same structural components are also often fabricated by Structural Welders prior to their use in the field.

  • Pipeline Welding (6G & GR).

1G, 2G, 5G and 6G pipe welding are applicable in the fabrication and installation of piping and pipelines for industrila plants, oil and gas industry, chemical plants and other industry which uses piping and pipelines.

  • Pipe Fitting.

Pipe fitting is the occupation of installing or repairing piping or tubing systems that convey liquid, gas, and occasionally solid materials. This work involves selecting and preparing pipe or tubing, joining it together by various means, and the location and repair of leaks.

  • Argon Welding.

Tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding, is an arc welding process that uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode to produce the well

  • Under Water Welding

Hyperbaric welding is the process of welding at elevated pressures, normally underwater. Hyperbaric welding can either take place wet in the water itself or dry inside a specially constructed positive pressure enclosure.

  • Combination Welding (6G & Argon).
  • Flux- Cored Arc Welding (FCAW).
  • Fillet/Buth.
