Thanks for your reply Jon, most helpful and appreciated as always,thank you also QCrobert
Mr Js55 I enjoyed your inference of lack of diligence and preparation,most amusing (not really helpful or welcoming but amusing none the less).In saying that however, Im sure a learned gentleman like yourself would be able to direct a plebiscite like me in an instant to the specific section and clause of ASME IX as below that I am searching for. Thank you in advance..
Shennanigans and humour aside,I am indeed however caught some what lacking in regards to the wording of my original question..
What I am searching for is not initially a question of qualification but more of general specification I suppose.
At what point does a welder become a welding operator? (in regards to ASME)
What level of automation in regards to the welding equipment being used justifies a change in the specification of a welder to a welding operator...
Does a welder who operates an LT7 SAW Tractor become a welding operator? or an AGW SAW Machine...
Does ASME specify as such in writing as above??
Appreciate the feedback..
