Why You Should Hire AWS Certified Welders

There are many welding contractors and handymen out there, but if you want a job done in a safe, timely and efficient manner, not just anyone will do. Trade schools and experience may teach the essentials, but individuals who are AWS Certified Welders have taken their career to the next step.

When you hire AWS Certified Welders at Freehold Welding, you are assured of engaging professionals that comply with industry standards in welding-related functions. As a welding contractor in New Jersey, we have trained and certified welders, experience, best practices, knowledge, the right equipment, skills and capabilities, as well as the commitment to deliver stellar service. All of these qualities are verified  through a third-party assessment.

What is an AWS Certification?

The AWS or American Welding Society, is a non-profit organization that was founded in 1919. Their mission is simple: to advance the science and technology associated with welding and cutting processes. There are a variety of certifications available to welders but in order to get one, welders must execute multiple weld types successfully at a testing facility. The welder must also pass inspection by a certified welding inspector.

The Advantages of Hiring AWS Certified Welders

Hiring a welder without experience or one that does not know Welding Procedure Specifications could be a liability. Certified welders have proven themselves to official inspectors that they know the trade. They have passed comprehensive examinations and demonstrated their skills. All AWS Certified Welders are tested for their ability to adhere to Welding Procedure Specification and selections from the QC7 Supplements. Tests include assembly, fit-up and positioning.

As a service provider with an AWS Certification, each one of our AWS Certified Welders has proven their ability to adhere to industry standards applying the highest technical skills in welding. In order to keep the certification valid, we are required to submit certification maintenance forms every six months. This is a mandatory requirement under the Code of Acceptance for the certification testing. A valid certification is further assurance that a welder continues to perform the same welding and to the same standards the certificate was issued for.

An AWS Certified Welder will:

  • Get the job done right and in accordance with federal and state regulations
  • Understand the Welding Procedure Specifications and apply them on the job
  • Complete the job in a timely and safe manner, securing your peace of mind
  • Minimize your risk and liability
