    9 views and nobody knows?

    Been looking at a job and wanted to know which
    class I was..1st or 2nd. I didn't know if it was rated
    by the years you have been welding or your skill
    level.

    I went to tech and have certs in SMAW,FCAW,GTAW
    and hold two ASME certs for 6G pipe both in SMAW and
    GTAW.

        I asked a few other places but haven't got a straight answer
        yet. I googled it and I get some from Australian forums..I
        know this isn't the same as in the States.

        Job I looked at does not say the difference between 1st and
        2nd class??

          Have you tried the AWS website? Or how about weldingweb.com?
          Someone there can probably answer, but you should put your question in the thread title to attract their attention.

              Welder's Classifications

              ErikGr7: Are you Stateside? The vernacular can vary by location. When I was at the A-Plant in Ohio, we had 1st Class Weldors (Journeymen, full scale), 2nd Class Weldors (serving apprenticeship, graduated scale).

              I'm sure this is something similar, based on certs.

                Dave, I'm overseas now doing some structual welding
                in Norway.

                The job is in the US and its ship building. I wasn't sure
                if it was some type of journeyman thing, for ships.

                To the OP..I posted this same thread on AWS and Hobert
                welds I think.

                Thanks for the replies guys.

                  1st class then

                  Next questions..why do they always say it's "Miller Time"
                  instead of "Lincoln Time?" j/k

                  No more stupid questions from me for a time.

                  Thanks all
