What level of knowledge does the welding coordinator have to have?

To control the various welding and welding-related operations and to achieve the desired quality consistently, a key feature of the standard is the requirement to ensure that people with welding responsibilities are competent to discharge those responsibilities. This is achieved by incorporation of another standard: ISO 14731 Welding Coordination - Tasks and Responsibilities.

Technical knowledge, which is split into two areas, general and specialised
Specific knowledge which is split into three levels, Comprehensive, Specific and Basic.

Comprehensive technical knowledge, where full technical knowledge is required, in accordance with ISO 14731 section 6.1, for the planning, executing, supervising and testing of all tasks and responsibilities in welding fabrication

Specific technical knowledge, where the level of technical knowledge needs to be sufficient for the planning, executing, supervising and testing of all tasks and responsibilities in welding fabrication
 
Basic technical knowledge, where the level of technical knowledge needs to be sufficient for the planning, executing, supervising and testing of all tasks and responsibilities within a limited technical field, involving only simple welded structures.
