Why Get AWS Certified?

The American Welding Society (AWS) Certified Welder program is designed to provide "transferable" credentials to professional welders who have demonstrated a skill level wanted by industry. Volunteers, representing all sections of the welding industry, came to a consensus on the skills an AWS Certified Welder must demonstrate. This means your earned credentials reflect an industry need.

More details about the benefits of being a Certified Welder on the AWS website.
