We are AWS D1.1 Certified welders.
welding qualification tests are usually given in pre-employment screenings to ensure that the welder can weld up to the company’s standards.
Welding certifications are designed to
ensure the welders skills are up to the code they will be working under. Welding certifications are also documented to prove that the welder is qualified under that code. Welding codes vary a lot depending on the type of work being done. There are many organizations that have different procedures depending on the type of work they oversee.
In the United States there are quite a few organizations that have certified welding procedures. The three largest organizations are:
The American Welding Society / AWS. www.aws.org They typically deal with structural codes mostly involved with buildings and bridges.
The American Society of Mechanical Engineers /ASME Section IX. www.asme.org They deal with boiler and pressure vessel codes.
The American Petroleum Institute / API. www.api.org They oversee pipeline welding codes for the gas and oil industries.

Structural welding is the welding that is done to erect structures that are often used in construction. Structural welding uses aluminum, stainless steel and reinforced steel, according to WeldingEngineer.com. This type of welding is done using a variety of designs, such as the groove weld, fillet weld, weld length, complete joint penetration, partial joint penetration, lap joints, weld size, weld spacing, transitions and the static and cyclical loading.
The structural welder works with a steel or aluminum erection team and uses equipment such as cutting torches and carbon air arc torches to join together different parts of the steel or aluminum structure. The structural welder is also responsible for cleaning and maintaining tools used in structural welding. When not in the process of welding, structural welders perform other duties when assigned, according to Fab Shop.
