In 2013, the strategic reorganisation of the Italian Institute of Welding was completed by setting up IIS PROGRESS, the company in the IIS Group that encompasses the Education and Training activity, with the aim of supporting national industry as it steers towards sustainable technological development.

The company operates from the central headquarters of Genova and from the regional offices of Legnano (MI), Mogliano Veneto (TV), Modena (MO), Priolo Gargallo (SR), Taranto (TA) and Rome (RM).

IIS PROGRESS performs traditional activities for theoretical and practical training in the field of welding techniques and non destructive testing.
Supported by the Group’s Laboratory, IIS PROGRESS offers specialised Training on advanced welding and inspection techniques and performs tests to support the Manufacturers of electronic components.

IIS PROGRESS currently employs about 25 people.

IIS PROGRESS is certified under ISO 9001 (certificate on the side >>).

On 22 February 2016, the Board of Directors of IIS PROGRESS approved the Organisation, Management and Control Model pursuant to It. Law Decree 231/2001.
