Take Welder Testing Into Your Own Hands
Facilities credentialed through AWS are committed to maintaining the quality and consistency which we are known for worldwide. Accredited Testing Facilities (ATFs) and CRAW Approved Testing Centers (ATCs) can test and qualify welders for certification. Certified Welding Fabricators (CWF) have a competitive edge in the international marketplace because their quality management program meets rigorous AWS requirements for welding procedures, welder performance and welding inspection.
VERIFY AND GO
The AWS National Registry of Certified Welders Verification Service is the fastest way to verify current AWS CW certification numbers. Simply plug in an AWS CW certification number and get to work.
Hire Welding Professionals
With resources for employers, professionals, and novices, AWS is committed to connecting businesses with qualified welders. AWS career posting services help make jobs and apprenticeships available to committed welders of every skill level, while giving businesses the confidence that every potential hire is AWS certified.
Mentor The Next Generation
The AWS Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP) lets you mentor the next generation of welders while fostering stronger partnerships with local education institutions, workforce development boards, and economic development entities.
