Accredited Test Facility
The AWS Accredited Test Facility program provides access to portable welding credentials for code welders. Welders can test on a number of code-specific supplements that pattern themselves after the qualification requirements of those specific codes. A special feature allows welders to certify to non-code or company-specific welding procedures, allowing for flexibility in a rapidly changing regulatory climate.
Supplements are available in the following industries:
Upon successful completion of a test, a copy of the welder’s qualification test record will be forwarded to AWS. Testers must pay a fee to AWS and AWS will issue a certification card to the welder. The Welder’s name will be entered into the National Registry of AWS Certified Welders, which is available to all who require it. AWS Certified Welders will maintain their certification by periodically sending in a form that attests to their continued use of the welding process to which they were originally certified. All testing is done on-site at the RTP.
Please call for any questions or concerns.
