The training we provide and successfully passing AWS CWI/CAWI/CWE Exam are the first steps in a lucrative and rewarding career. The CWI® is widely recognized, both nationally and internationally, which will provide you a stable career.

This program will prepare students to take the CWI/CAWI/CWE examination. We will introduce the student to various information pertaining to inspection of welds as well as terms and definitions used by AWS for the examination. The student will have an understanding of the information required by AWS in the form of PowerPoint slides, practice examinations, and hand-outs to become a successful Certified Welding Inspector. This course will also familiarize students with AWS procedures on exam day.

We offer 6 days of intensive training and on the last day a practice session is given for what to expect on exam day. This course will meet a minimum of 8 hours per day and 6 hours on Saturday with problem solving, practice examinations and reading assignments throughout the week.  (Practice Examination questions may not be same as the AWS Exam.)
