Good luck! My husband did his Skype interview for carpentry vetassess last October and he was sooooo nervous. But all was fine, very informal and friendly.

 

all the best and fingers crossed for you.

If your assessor is as friendly as the bloke my hubby had for his Joinery technical interview then you'll feel at ease in no time. Just remember they're not there to try and catch you out. I'm sure IT WILL BE OK xxx

'Twas easy Ross :)

 

Are you doing the "heavy metal fabricator" interview? I think it's called that?

 

It was a skype like conversation, crossed with a PowerPoint presentation. Questions ranged from how to pick up an object, what you would have in your tool box/bag, to the correct polarity for TIG welding on aluminium. DC negative by the way ;)

 

The guy I had didn't try to trick me. I was up front and said to him that my hands on welding experience was limited to oxy-acetylene and stick. But with my 15 years+ of welding inspection experience, (I have been CSWIP for years now), I was able to answer 95% of the questions with a "yeah mate" (which I took as a good sign!)

 

So just concentrate on your revision (it does help massively) on gasses in welding, pre-heat, polarity of all types of welding, and safety.

 

It's not that hard, I honestly think that they're trying to get a handle of your base knowledge of your field of expertise. If you know your stuff then you'll ace it.

 

It took me one hour and twenty. I've heard people taking 45 minutes to three hours to take the test, so that should give you a rough guide to the "how did I do/duration" of the test.

 

Good luck!

Hi m8,

 

was hoping you could answer another few questions if you don't mind as my test is next week and the studying is ramping up just like my nervs lol,

 

was most the harder questions about welding?

 

also were they asking for pacific details like what amps, fire feed rate you would set your welder up at?

 

was there any calculation questions?

 

also are you sure that TIG DCEN is for aluminium cause I though it was AC but you have more experience than I do just double checking lol

 

I don't have a lot of hands on welding experience so any help you could give me to prepare for questions will be very appreciated

 

cheers m8 and a hope you all the best!
