Welder Qualification Upgrade
In addition to our standard welding programs Canadian Welding Skills is also able to offer training and testing options for welders with previous experience.
As welding is a diverse career, welders often find it necessary to update their skills and qualifications to remain competitive in the job market. Literally dozens of welding "tickets" are available , due to the many combinations of processes, positions, metal alloys, filler metals and shielding gases etc. Possessing up to date/ current qualifications will prove welding competency and help advance your career.
We offer a range of standard training/ testing options:Mild Steel
- SMAW - All Positions
- FCAW - All Positions
- GTAW - All Positions
- GMAW Flat & Horizontal
- GMAW -All Positions
Custom Skills Upgrade
We invite experienced welders who are looking to upgrade their skills to contact us and arrange an assessment of current skills. Following the assessment, recommendations can be made and a custom program designed. Programs can range in length from a couple of days to a few weeks, depending on your individual goals and previous experience.
Testing / Renewing Qualifications
If you already have experience in a particular process and just need a small amount of training to complete testing, or if you are looking to renew previously expired qualifications, we are also able to help. We are a registered test centre with the CWB (Canadian Welding Bureau) and TSSA (Technical Standards and Safety Authority). We run testing sessions with the Canadian Welding Bureau on a weekly basis and can therefore accommodate testing within a very short time frame. Training for testing can be done on a part time basis on Friday afternoons
