Welding Certification test Q&A and tips and tricks

Need to pass AWS test.

Postby sedanman » Sun Jan 15, 2017 9:05 pm

ANY AWS test. I work for a large municipal transit athourity. They are opening fab shop and the requirements for appointment are to be AWS certified. They don't care which cert as long as you have one at the time of appointment. I'm figuring a horizontal plate test. Any suggestions?

I think that the 3g is actually a little easier. I find filling the groove flat like that to just be kind of awkward.

If you wish to do AWS test, you can have a look at this ... ws-testing. I suggest you go with 3g or 4g. 3g is much simpler and easier. As a professional welder, you should have 3g or 4 g certification and don't go below that.

I know this won't help you, because of your location, but since it fits this topic, it might help someone. There's a new post on this thread,
about a really inexpensive course ending with AWS cert tests.
Not everyone scrolls down to the section on Education opportunities, so I thought I'd take advantage of your post to share this.
