The article presents the results of development of technical means of semi-virtual type for training welders and welding production specialists at the SE «Scientific and Engineering Center of Welding and Control in Nuclear Power Engineering» (SEC WCNPE) in cooperation with the E.O. Paton Electric Welding Institute of the NAS of Ukraine and the G.E. Pukhov IPME of the NAS of Ukraine. The level of development of technical means, attained at the present time, for training and certification of welders and welding production specialists was considered, which allows predicting the expansion in the fields of application of modern information technologies, including those reproducing the mixed reality at maximum adaptation of virtual space to the real welding equipment and providing the remote access of telecommunication systems. It was shown that simplification of training and its approximation to the conditions of real welding processes is possible by using a new generation of welding simulators, in which modern information technologies are widely applied. 15 Ref., 3 Figures.
