hey

I am back on track to my Welding inspection career, I have taken ASNT course and I already got my ASNT , Level II ( PT , RT, MT, VT ) , and I want to get further ahead with my career , both in the welding inspection and NDT domains
what should be the next move for me ( CWI , AWS , or CSWIP )
and can I take an AWS exam specialized in the AWS D1.1 ...is that an option ?
and are those certificates needed if I want to be a QC manager one day ....???
or is it not a MUST
