Welcome to the Weld Rich and Steel blog!
For companies working in the structural steel fabrication industry, CWB certification is an absolute must. In fact, it is a requirement in order for a company to work in this field at all. CWB welding is a standard above the rest – given out by the Canadian Welding Bureau, it is indicative of a welder possessing higher than usual levels of knowledge and experience.
CWB certification is a process that needs to be renewed every two years.
Indeed, due to its wide scope and strict standards, CWB welding is difficult to master. There are a number of steps involved during the process, during which the welding supervisor will have to demonstrate superior command of:
- Overseeing day to day operations
- Preparing appropriate welding data sheets for projects
- Submitting all forms to the CWB
- Coordinating with the local CWB representative
- Consulting with engineers regarding the welding program
- Ensuring his welders are fully familiar with the processes and materials
The scope of the CWB is far-reaching.
CWB is capable of qualifying welders, welding inspectors, welding supervisors, welding engineers, and welding electrodes/consumables. As such, the CWB is the foremost institution in Canada possessing the highest level of expertise regarding the welding profession. It is because of its stringent processes that Canadian welders can bring a high level of competence to the field and make consistent progress and reliable products.
