The Certified Welding Supervisor seminar was developed to teach individuals the mastery that welding supervisors must be capable of demonstrating. This five-day course focuses on the knowledge a supervisor needs to support improvement of the welders' environment, productivity, throughput, weld quality and safety. Participants will learn the science rather than the art of welding for a better control of variables in the welding process. This program focuses on the economics of welding and is the first AWS program designed to enhance the profit margins of welding fabrication companies.
As an AWS Certified Welding Inspector or Senior Certified Welding Inspector, you must renew your certification every three years. Every nine years, you must recertify, either by examination, obtaining approved endorsements, by recertification course, or by demonstrating 80 hours of continuing education, along with other requirements. Neglecting to recertify prior to your expiration will result in the loss of your certification status and will require you to retest on all parts of the original exam to regain your certification
The five-day AWS Certified Radiographic Interpreter (CRI) Seminar is designed to ensure that individuals have the knowledge to properly assess indications produced on radiographic media of weldments or adjacent base metal. It will prepare you for the CRI Certification exam, which is given at the end of each seminar week.
