Certified Resistance Welding Technician


A Certified Resistance Welding Technician (CRWT) possesses the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to set up, maintain, and operate resistance welding equipment. 

As such, the CRWT exam covers an array of resistance welding fundamentals and concepts needed to demonstrate mastery of these core skills. 

To ensure that candidates are prepared for the CRWT exam, AWS has created a series of comprehensive seminars, in-person and online, to arm attendees with the knowledge needed to take the exam with confidence.
