Certified Robotic Arc Welding
The AWS Robotic Arc Welding Certification program demonstrates that operators and technicians possess the technical knowledge to perform robotic arc welding tasks in a safe, efficient and economical manner. It also signifies that the CRAW Operator or Technician has demonstrated the capability of working with various codes, standards, and specifications. Moreover, since proof of active practice or re-examination is required every three years, CRAW Operators and Technicians are always current with the welding industry.
The American Welding Society provides the most comprehensive welding courses in an engaging, easy-to-use, modular format. All content is developed and updated by senior AWS instructors and staff. The seminar material is accessible at any time of day or night, and instructors are periodically available to answer your questions.
The AWS Certified Robotic Arc Welding exam is composed of two parts, a general knowledge, multiple-choice written exam and a performance test that demonstrates a thorough knowledge of the process and the ability to perform a series of tasks, including the use of the GMAW process to weld a test coupon to a Welding Procedure Specification (WPS). Both parts of the exam will be conducted at the same AWS Approved Testing Center (ATC). The performance test can be completed and passed three months prior to or after the written exam.
AWS conferences set the stage for new ideas, products and technology through interactive exhibits, educational programming, and networking opportunities. See list of current conferences here.
