Trainin& and certification shall be conducted by a direct Simtech employee$ 8ach welder will be fully
trained on the weldin& e=uipment for the particular pro<ect and will be re=uired to demonstrate the
full process of weldin&$ The process includes set up of the tool, loadin& of the pipe andAor fittin&s,
ali&nment of the tool, and the weld process$ Trainin& will also include minor maintenance
techni=ues to 7eep tools in ideal operatin& conditions$ After an operator has demonstrated their
ability to operate the e=uipment, Simtech will issue a certified welders card upon completion$
