Specification for Qualification and Certification for Entry Level Welders.
American Welding Society, Miami, FL.
This document provides a standard that defines the requirements and program for the American Welding Society to certify entry-level welders. The certification of entry-level welders requires performance qualification and practical knowledge tests that require a minimum of reading, computation, and manual skills to complete. The Entry-Level Welder Program will form a part of the National Skill Standards Program, which is being enacted across a wide range of industries in the United States. The standard includes the following nine sections: (1) scope; (2) definitions; (3) requirements for participating organizations; (4) practical knowledge test; (5) performance tests; (6) inspection, testing, and acceptance criteria; (7) documentation; (8) certification; and (9) information about the National Registry of Entry-Level Welders. Three appendixes include the following: standard welding procedure specifications, a workmanship sample, and face- and root-bend test results. (KC)
