...QAQC Inspector without experience or knowledge...?

Get as much knowledge about the construction industry as can...

Any certification that is issued by non-Nigerian Institutions is advisable to get...

Trust me, I am not hating on that part grin grin grin grin grin.

Square Peg in Round Hole. #NigeriaFactor. No offence meant but congratulations anyway.

Meanwhile as per your enquiry, the QA/QC Certification depends on the Engineering discipline. If you are more specific then we can be more helpful e.g. a mechanical engineer might need some API standards cert... an Electrical Engineer NEC Codes, IR Tests etc... Chemical Engineer some Chemical certs etc... You might also need some HSE certs depending on the industry...

A friend once mentioned something about http://www.qaqccourse.com/... Don't really know much about them but you can browse google for further assistance.

Congrats once again

Re: What Certifications Can I Take IN QA/QC? by jcflex(m): 6:46am On Oct 27, 2016
visit asq.com

QMS quality management system, internal and lead auditor course.

check out SGS site, SON site as well as bureau veritas.

again you need to know the SOP for construction firm, take as many course as possible on construction and safety, Nebosh will help alot on safety related issue

Google is your friend.

All of your questioning is experience on the job.

interview is not all about experience, but your altitude, which some of you have already show us here. always have right altitude to what ever you are doing.

again ability and willingness to learn on the job, which is what op is doing right now,

again the position might be entry level position which need little or no experience.

stop hating.

@ op congratulations

QC/QA responsibility is the same thing with other Engineer on site except you are there as a project specification enforcement engineer. You need to know the project requirements and in-depth knowledge of material testing, concrete trial mix and reinforcements details etc

It depends on ur scope of wrk in the firm, or what they really are into, cos construction is s general word. but first of all get ur ISO 9001 2015 certification. Also try as much as possible to be conversant with your job ITPs( inspection and test plan) and related codes and standards. U must also be good with drawing interpretations atleast. So the bottom line is that u have to make sure that ur assigned job conforms to project specification and contract requirements. Goodluck.

Take test on CSWIP or CWI ( Certified Welding Inspector). If your interest is in oil and gas sector, that is.

First familiarize your self with the process
Research on each processes
Look for applicable standards from BS and ASTM and check which conforms with your procedure
Ask questions from people on the field...
I can help in ways you have questions ...
Excel for proper records and result documentation
You are an enforcement engineer just as safety but you are more superior to safety too

OP, you need certifications in the courses mentioned above. Pls don't rush. Take time to search the internet what the courses entails. Download materials, get from people. Focus one one or two at a time. NDT ( radiography, magnetic particle testing, dye Penetrant testing etc) certification or welding certifications (CSWIP and the likes). Most companies offering certification in Nig are only after your money, MOST give little knowledge. But if you are well informed, and prepared for their exams, you'll not worry about the quality of knowledge they offer you, you'll just get your certifications easily.

Wishing u good success
