Myanmar has successfully opened its first polyethylene pipe welding school with assistance from the Australian Trade Commission (Austrade), Australian manufacturer Worldpoly and the Hon Andrew Robb AO, MP, Australia’s Minister for Trade and Investment. The opening of the new school ensures that this developing nation’s poly welders will be educated to ISO standards, and go into the field knowing that the skills they now have will assist in creating quality welds.
The School opening was officiated by Mr. U Khant Nyien (Deputy Director of Naypytaw City Development Committee) and the Hon Andrew Robb AO MP, Minister for Trade and Investment, Australia.
The School opens a new era for Myanmar, particularly for engineers and technicians from both government and the private sector to explore practical and correct welding procedures on HDPE pipe installation.
The Worldpoly/Authentic (Worldpoly’s local representative) Polyethylene Butt Welding School offers continuous training, including theoretical and practical classes as well as workshop test welds.
