What is CWB Certification & Why Does it Matter?
In order to achieve and maintain CWB certification, companies engaged in welding are required to have their personnel qualified for engineering, supervisory and welding and follow approved welding procedures.
For engineers involved in the certification process the CWB has created a resource page with information regarding the standards and to assist you in the qualification of welding procedures.
Similar to the welding companies, welding inspection organizations are required to have their personnel qualified for supervisory and certified for inspection, whether it’s visual, destructive or non-destructive testing.
Individuals looking to achieve certification as visual welding inspector are required to meet standard’s experience requirements and successfully complete written and practical exams.
Exceeding Canadian Certification Expectations
In Canada, a number of CSA product standards require welding fabricators to use welding consumables certified in accordance to CSA W48. CSA W48 provides requirements for the classification and certification of welding consumables by themselves or in conjunction with gas mixtures or fluxes as applicable.
Stud manufacturers are also required to qualify their stud base in accordance with CSA Standard W59 or other governing standard.
As the Authorized National Body (ANB) for the International Institute of Welding (IIW), the CWB Group provides several levels of internationally recognized certifications and qualifications for welding professionals along with certification for welding companies.
