Why AWS Certification is the right answer for you and your company

IF YOU WORK IN THE FIELD OF WELDING:

You've made the smart decision to become AWScertified. You know that certification can mean better pay, more job security, and the proof that your skills and knowledge label you as one of the industry's elite. Becoming certified means passing tests that require a high degree of knowledge, top-notch skills, and the ability to navigate complex codes quickly. And if you, like everyone else, have little time to study, then AWS has the answer.

IF YOU MAKE DECISIONS ABOUT EMPLOYEES IN THE FIELD OF WELDING INSPECTION:

When you hire an AWS-certified employee, you are getting one of the most highly qualified people in the business. AWS Certification helps your company minimize failures and recalls, increase sales advantages over foreign and domestic competition, and maximize product liability protection.

In business, time is money -- your money.

At AWS, we recognize that time is valuable. Our seminars save your company time and money on training and testing. We also want to make it easy on your bottom line by offering the seminar (pre-exam course) and the certification exam in the same city. Or, your employee can take the exam at a later date in another city that may be more convenient for your company. We also offer in-house seminars and exams if you have a group of employees who would benefit from education and certification without leaving the workplace.

Take an AWS seminar and get both knowledge and value.

We offer five-and-a-half days of intensive seminars that will help prepare you to pass the AWS certification tests. Our experienced instructors will help you learn the material you need to know fast, and show you how to use and understand the latest standards. AWS seminars are an excellent value. The price includes complete prep course work taught by veteran instructors, refreshments and lunch, AWS membership (for non-members), subscriptions to the Welding Journal and Inspection Trends, and reference books. You save time and money too, because we supply many of the books you need (a $1,200 value). AWS seminar weeks are offered in locations all over the country, so there's sure to be one scheduled near you. There are clinics for the D1.1 Code, API 1104 Code, Welding Inspection Technology, and Visual Inspection, followed by the certification exam at the end of the week. By grouping the seminar with the test, you can save on time and travel.

Take the guesswork out of hiring someone qualified.

AWS-certified employees improve quality, increase productivity, and gain your company a unique advantage. The AWS Certification is one of the industry's most respected stamps of approval. Industry professionals who qualify are highly regarded and sought-after throughout the welding industry, because certification attests to a highly documented level of skill and expertise.

Prep for the test with the best.

When preparing for an exam that proves you're one of the best, look to the people who know it best--AWS. From developing the codes and specifications that keep our industry strong, to creating the books that share that information with you, and administering the exams that affirm that knowledge, AWS is your best source for certification exam preparation. Don't waste time going anywhere else.

Certified Associate Welding Inspector (CAWI)

If you don't yet have sufficient work history to qualify for the CWI exam, you may qualify to test as a Certified Associate Welding Inspector (CAWI) with as little as two years' experience. The CAWI exam is given on the same schedule as the CWI exam. Call for details.

Certified Welding Educator (CWE)

If you are a welding educator, you should be interested in obtaining the AWS Certified Welding Educator certification. CWE candidates provide the required welding instructor credentials and take just the first two parts of the CWI exam (the open-book test on a code is not required). However, by taking the entire CWI test and providing the required welding instructor credentials, CWI and CWE certifications can be achieved at the same time. Either way, an AWS CWI Seminar will prepare you to earn this valuable welding educator credential.
