Testing and Certification

Tuesday, March 10th, 2020

Greetings AWS Section Members,

The AWS Holston Valley Section will be meeting at the Greene Technology Center in Greeneville TN on March 10th for a presentation titled “Welder Qualification Testing and Certification” presented by Gerald Austin.

This will be an introductory discussion that will include a brief overview of various concepts that are often misunderstood about welder performance qualification testing. Topics to be addressed will be as follows:

  • When is Testing of Welders Required?
  • Who can Perform Testing and Certification?
  • Is welder testing all that is required?
  • What is a “Certified Welder”
  • Further Training Options
  • Questions and Answers

This meeting will be a great opportunity for section members to become more familiar with the requirements for welder performance qualification testing and certification and discuss their experiences with the topic. AWS Members may bring guests to this meeting.

Additionally, the section will be hosting two follow up training sessions that will occur on two Saturdays that will be decided based upon the dates chosen by those registering. There will be no cost for the follow up sessions for individuals who are AWS Members. These sessions will not be open to the general public and will be addressed in further detail at the March 10th session. If you know someone in industry who would be interested in attending, let them know how to become a member!
