    Sure, you’re good, but are you certified??  Here’s your opportunity.  UBCTS and WTTI (Welder Training and Testing Institute) are joining forces to help welders prepare and successfully complete a code certification test right here at UBCTS.  This 10-hour course is structured around the popular AWS D1.1 welding code.  This code gives you an opportunity to become certified for any and all position(s) using the SMAW or FCAW process on 3/8” or 1” steel plate.   Successful completers will receive the lab report showing this certification -- a certification that frequently leads to more job opportunities and higher earning potential!  This class is taught by a Certified Welding Inspector (CWI).  It starts in the classroom and provides valuable insight into the code and test requirements.  Welders will have 6 hours to practice skills prior to testing, while receiving expert instruction and guidance from an experienced CWI.   

    This is not a beginner’s course.  Prior knowledge and skills in welding required. 

    Welder provides own practice material and safety gear, including:

    • Welding helmet
    • Safety glasses
    • Sleeves/Jacket
    • Boots
    • Welding gloves
