CWB Certification

CWB Welder Qualification Testing

Certification Description

All welders working for a certified company must be qualified by the CWB at least once every two years. This is a practical test administered by the CWB representative that would normally take place at accredited testing centers. The practical test ensures that the welder is competent to weld in the given process and position that is tested.
The CWB process and certification provides an added level of confidence and assurance that the documentation, weld quality and knowledge level of fabricators is independently verified against the requirements of the standards, and thereby minimizes liability and public safety risks.


In order to be successful, Welders who register for a welding test MUST provide their own PPE and welding hand tools. 

Welding machines, consumables and test material will be provided by the welding facility. 

Cost $170 per test plate

  • There are no refunds if a candidate is absent for the examination on the set date
