Formed in 1989, the Welding Technology Institute of Australia (WTIA) currently has over 350 member companies and 1,200 personal members.

The Institute was formed by the amalgamation of the Australian Welding Institute and the Australian Welding Research Association. It offers a wide range of services to its members including:
  • technical advisory
  • library services
  • information services
  • seminars and conferences
  • publish relevant industry publications (Australasian Welding Journal, Welding Research Supplement)
  • conducts examinations for welders, inspectors, supervisors, technologists and engineers
The WTIA is the Australian representative to the 48-member country International Institute of Welding and is the IIW Authorised National Body (ANB) administering the IIW international qualifications program in this country.

It has established a national network of IIW Approved Training Bodies (ABTs) and has introduced transitional arrangements for existing Australian qualifications to the new international scheme.

Key strategies of the WTIA are:
  • create the correct cultures for competitiveness
  • facilitate technology transfer to industry
  • drive research and development
  • provide a quality work force
  • standardise qualification and certification throughout the country
