A high-functioning quality system has high added value

Your quality system has to function well. To secure a good return on investment, you need to know which elements are important for your organization, which specific demands and features have to be considered and how your employees should operate to achieve this.  

Training and support for your employees

Together with you, we set up your quality system and take care of its implementation. Next, we inform/train your employees regarding the applicable legislation in order to achieve and maintain the desired educational level.  

You can follow all developments regarding your quality system and the certification of your welding process in our online portal; the Tecona portal. Here, all practices and activities involving the certification are kept on record in your online dossier.   

Also, we use our cloud service Tecona Portal for the registration of welding method qualification (Procedure Qualification Record) and welder qualifications (Welder Performance Qualification). Timely prolonging your certifications and the accompanying actions can be executed in the portal.
