    What ? No! Guess again. AWS has no "Base level cert".
    And what would the guy that has no access to plasma cutting do, sorry cant weld that today we have no plasma???

    How about the cert for fillet welds?

    6010 + 7018 how about when it is not an open root?

    I know you were wanting to help and parts of your post are true for specific joints and conditions.


    To the OP.

    First you need to determine "what needs to be welded"?
    Then establish a procedure.
    Then test the procedure/ or the welder to the pre-qualified procedure.

    In the USA system no one(AWS) certifies welders. welders are qualified.
    Qualifications are limited to qualified procedures and have an sunset (don't weld to the procedure for 6 months and the qualification expires [AWS D1.1])


    In some ways I suspect you know all this and are here playing with the animals, just fishing for all the misinformation that abounds?

Many of the questions on the check list I have to answer no to, it seems the paper work is looking more at the way the shop is structured with its employees then the actual welding being done. Not to mention this is a 3 year cert and requires another re-cert and $1600- yikes !

    This sounds like you are talking about AISC not AWS. AISC deals with steel fabrication standards and practices. AWS deals with welding and welding related issues, standards and practices.

    AWS requires each individual to be qualified. AWS has no provision to qualify groups as a whole.


    It would be helpful if you posted the material you are referring to, in this post.

    Not vary concerned about dontommy or his edification, just his misinformed statements, and it's effects on the next guy that is searching for information.
