MIAMI - SGS provides Nondestructive Testing (NDT) training courses and certification services as well as NDT services. Nondestructive testing is a term used to describe the method of testing and inspecting materials or products for defects without damaging or destroying the items, for example with time-of-flight diffraction (TOFD), a widely-used tool for flaw detection in welds, or with dye penetrant examination (PE) to detect welds.

For 2009, SGS also has scheduled nine Certified Welding Inspector (CWI) courses in Latin America, including Columbia, Peru, Ecuador, Panama and Venezuela.

The American Welding Society (AWS) is a nonprofit organisation which aims to advance the science, technology and application of welding and related joining disciplines. With headquarters in Miami, its main activities include developing codes and standards for the welding industry, arranging training, progressing certifications, networking and publishing books and materials for welding professionals.

The SGS Group provides inspection, verification, testing and certification services. With more than 55,000 employees, SGS operates a network of more than 1,000 offices and laboratories around the world.
