As you prepare for testing, we need to make some decisions. 

What processes are we testing on? For example: SMAW, GMAW or FCAW/MCAW. 

The second most important question is: Should we use X-Ray or Cut & Bending to evaluate the test coupons?

Please Note

CWB Certified Companies must complete and forward a copy of the “Welder Test Authorization” form prior to testing. Click here to get form 

CWB Welder Qualification Cards are only issued to CWB Certified companies.
Welders testing on their own will be issued a Pass/Fail Record (letter). A COPY of this record is given the CWB Certified company the welder is working for and the company will forward the record to the CWB to have the Qualification Card issued. Test Records and Welder Cards are valid for 2 years.

We strongly suggest welders renew their qualifications at least 90 days before the expiry date on the welder card. This additional time will be added to the new card. If retesting is done 91 days after the expiry date check testing will no longer apply and all positions will require retesting.

A Typical Day at the Test Center

Our mission is to prepare you for testing in a clean, comfortable environment. We integrate the training and testing processes to create a positive experience you can look forward to every time you require training or testing.

Here's what you can expect on test day:

7:45 am - Doors open

7:45 to 8 am- Booth Assignment

8:00 to 8:45 am - Classroom. 
Grab a coffee etc and settle in for a review of the Tips & Techniques portion of the training video followed by a general overview of the instructions and a Q&A session with the CWB Rep present.

8:45 to 9:00 am - Get familiar with your booth and shop layout. Run a few passes on some scrap.

9:00 am - Testing begins as coupons are handed out by CWB Rep along with any additional instructions if required. Welding and coupon preparation will continue until test day is complete.
