Who is the AWS Certified Welding Engineer?

A person with the demonstrated education, experience, and knowledge as defined by this information and who successfully passes the required examinations is considered qualified as an AWS Certified Welding Engineer (CWEng.). The CWEng. is capable of directing those operations associated with weldments and other types of joints that are completed in accordance with the appropriate contract documents, codes, and other standards to produce a satisfactory product. The welding engineers activities begins before production or construction welding and continues through the production process then ending when the production process is complete.

Do You Qualify?
In order to qualify as a Certified Welding Engineer, you must have a combination of qualifying education and work experience, with supporting documentation, as follows: Minimum Education Minimum Work Experience 1 Year
