Certified Welder Application INSTRUCTIONS FOR APPLICATION There is a $30 service charge for each certification granted. For credit card information, fill out the box at the top of the application. Please fill out a separate application for each certification that the welder tested. Personal Information (supplied by welder): The welder is responsible for maintaining the certification and AWS must have a personal address in order to stay in contact with him/her. All certification materials will be sent to the welder's home address. Remember to contact AWS if you change your address! If the box is checked to Send Results to Employer, the employer's address must be supplied. AWS will send a confirmation letter to the company address indicated below the box. Test Information (supplied by the Facility Test Supervisor): When using Supplement G, AWS must have a copy of the actual WPS on file. If you have previously submitted the WPS, the AWS Certification Department will have a record of this information. Any further tests using that same WPS can be referenced on the application. If this is the first time a WPS is being used, please submit a copy of that WPS and any supporting paperwork along with the application. Under Qualifications, list the abbreviations that should appear on the welder certification card using the code below. Note that some categories (i.e., Gas) may not apply in all situations (e.g., SMAW). Authorization: If the welder wants the certification information to be released, for example, to people wishing to hire AWS Certified Welders, have the welder sign where indicated. Review: After completing the application, the Facility Test Supervisor must sign the document, indicating his CWI Certificate number and its expiration date. Signature by the ATF Supervisor attests to the completeness and accuracy of the record supplied. GUIDE TO INTERPRETING ABBREVIATIONS ON AWS CERTIFIED WELDER CARD EXAMPLE Supplement G
