    Booked in to do a 6G test next week, I’ve got 4 days training & a test.

    never welded pipe before very competent 4G welder but never needed to weld pipe at my old company. I’m now self employed and 9/10 jobs require 135/138 root & 136 F+C around my way,

    is it realistic time frame 4 days to learn to do 6G if I’m a competent 4G welder & any tips / pointers for me? Really nervous as it’s costing a few quid so would Be gutted if I failed. Any advice will be appreciated and taken on board. Thanks lads

    In case it's useful:


    Jody has a lot of videos on most positional welds. He usually knows what he's talking about.
