Interested in becoming AWS Certified?
A welding certification lets employers know that you have successfully completed a practical test of your ability to perform one type of sound weld in accordance with industry standards.
The American Welding Society (AWS) has developed a program for certifying welders to national standards that is recognized by many industries. Butler CC uses Certified Welding Inspectors (CWIs) capable of conducting the AWS certification.
