A certified international welding engineer (IWI), Martin is also qualified under CSA W47.1, W47.2, W59, W59.2, W186, and API RP-577. He is an expert on many welding codes including ASME Section IX; API RP 582; the API RP 934 series; CSA W47.1 and W47.2; W59, W59.2, and W186; AWS D1.1, D1.5, and D1.6; WRC; NACE; and some EN. He was a design and QC engineer at a pressure vessel and tank fabrication shop.


Throughout his career in consulting and in fabrication shops, Martin has developed and implemented his welding engineering knowledge in various industrial sectors including mining, aluminium, petroleum, lumber, and steel structures. He is an expert on a wide range of metals: QT steel, duplex and super duplex; super austenitic stainless steel; nickel alloy; Cr-Mo steel; tool steel; cladding material; aluminium alloy, etc. On many occasions, Martin has demonstrated a marked ability to solve challenging issues involving corrosion- or cyclic loading-induced weld failures. He has been involved in welding process optimisation, mechanization, automation and troubleshooting, as well as welder training.


Martin has worked overseas as a welding engineer on projects in Peru, Costa Rica, Nunavut, and Madagascar. He has specified post-weld heat treatment procedures, including local heat treatments on large pressure vessels and boilers, and has worked extensively with mechanical testing and non-destructive inspection methods.

As a welding specialist, he has been a guest speaker at many welding seminars.
