In this study, an application has been developed to evaluate the performance of the welder candidates who’s using the 3D Welding Simulator. Training of welders with virtual welding simulator for three different welding methods (Electric arc, MIG-MAG and TIG) can be performed close to reality. To keep the information about the experiments on virtual welding simulator and the users who performed the experiments, a Database management and reporting system has been developed. In this software module, welding information, calculated ideal welding parameters and parameters data recorded during welding operation are stored in the database. With this software virtual welding experiments performed by welder candidate can be evaluated, the results can be shown as graphics and scoring, and personal or classroom-based development can be traced.
