Test Calendar





Practice Time for Testing

For welders looking to test for the first time as well as seasoned welders who haven’t tested in awhile we highly recommend training and or practicing beforehand. When you come in to train for an upcoming test, our instructors will prepare you for what is required on the test as well as advising you of welding techniques, settings, allowable tolerances, etc.

All material is prepared for students for practice and testing. Students will be given practice plates to maximize their training time.

Canadian Welding Bureau – CWB Testing

Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB) is a non-profit organization that administers the CSA Code. The CSA code that most Welders test to using Stick, Mig, Tig, Flux-Core or Metal-Core is W47.1 Fusion Welding of Steel. When Aluminum welding is required under the CSA Code W47.2 is used.

CWB certification to W47.1 is mandated by law in the Ontario Building Code.

  • SMAW – Stick (Mild Steel)
  • GMAW – Mig (Mild & Aluminum)
  • FCAW – Flux-Core / MCAW – Metal-Core (Mild Steel)
  • GTAW – Tig (Mild Steel & Aluminum)

Technical Standards & Safety Authority – TSSA Testing

TSSA is the Ontario regulatory authority mandated by law for registering and certifying welding/brazing procedures and welder tests on pressure vessels under the ASME IX Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code.

Welders who are welding boilers, pipes, or items with pressures that fall under the ASME Section IX code are required to be TSSA ticketed/certified.

  • SMAW – Alberta (ABSA) B Pressure Pipe Stick 2G 5G Mild Steel
  • SMAW – Stick 6G Pipe or Stick Plate Mild Steel & Stainless
  • GTAW / SMAW – Tig / Stick 6G Pipe or Plate Mild Steel & Stainless
  • GMAW – Mig Plate Mild Steel & Stainless
  • GMAW – Mig Plate & Pipe Aluminum
  • FCAW – Flux-Core Plate & Pipe Mild Steel
  • GTAW – Tig Plate & Pipe Mild steel & Stainless
  • GTAW – Tig Plate or Pipe Aluminum

American Welding Society – AWS Testing

AWS is an internationally recognized welding standard mandated in the USA. The AWS codes cover a vast amount in the welding industry from Sheet Metal, Stainless, Aluminum, Aerospace, etc. This code is used in Canada when stipulated in contract documents for various industries.

  • SMAW – Stick Plate Mild Steel
  • GMAW – Mig Plate Mild Steel & Stainless
  • GMAW – Mig Plate & Pipe Aluminum
  • MCAW – Metal-Core Plate Mild Steel
  • FCAW – Flux-Core Plate Mild Steel & Stainless

I learned about Weltech during a trades career fair and did some research into the welding profession in the Spring of 2013. Weltech offered a comprehensive 7 week course with a strong focus on the major welding techniques, personal instruction, small class sizes, and hands on training.

I just finished the Combination Welding Program in Weldtech Training which lasted 7 weeks. The program contained : GMAW , SMAW, GTAW, and blueprint reading.

I went to Weldtech to take the welder combo course with FluxCore added on to do some upgrading and recertify. Previously, in 1998, I went to a different school and wasted 6 months and a small fortune. At my previous school, all I learned was how to pass a T.S.S.A. welding test.
