Certification is a simple concept: it is a written testimony that a person has the necessary qualifications to perform the functions that he or she was certified to do.

However, the process of determining and obtaining the required qualifications can be complex. A person can be certified in one welding process and position or several, and there are many levels and processes where certification can be obtained. Certification can be broadly applied or limited to certain tasks.

Employers and individual welders can obtain certification based on the qualification services which can be obtained through a recognized certification agency such as Certified Welding Technologies Bureau.

Certification means business, and that is why accredited facilities and certified inspectors is important to you. Before we issue a certification, our AWS CWI QC-1 certified welding inspector (ASNT SNT-TC-1A LEVEL-III) reviews all of the testing procedures and documents for accuracy. After confirming that everything is in compliance to the particular code being certified to, then the AWS certified seal is applied to the certificate and issued to the participant.

Certification is usually performed in response to customer, government, or code requirements. But it is also done to develop business or as a defense against possible litigation, because certification implies that certified personnel are properly qualified. Certification is usually performed according to existing published criteria. These include formal recommended practices and standards such as certified welding technologies bureau standards of certifications.
