What is the CWB?

The Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB) is a non-profit organization responsible for administering the certification process for welders and companies based on the CSA Code. As the governing body recognized by the CSA (Canadian Standards Association), CWB oversees the examination and certification of welders to ensure they meet the required standards. Additionally, CWB manages the certification of welding engineers, supervisors, and inspectors, further contributing to the quality and safety of welding practices.

How to Become a Welder

Becoming a welder involves fulfilling three key requirements: High School Education: Aspiring welders need a high school diploma or equivalent to qualify for recognized apprenticeship programs.

Authorized Apprenticeship Program: Welders must complete an authorized apprenticeship program where they gain on-the-job training and log certified hours under the supervision of an accredited supervisor. Skilled Trades Ontario, the Crown agency responsible for managing welding apprenticeship programs in Ontario, oversees the training process.

CWB Certification: The Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB) provides certification for welders based on the CSA Group's welding standards, particularly the W47.1 Fusion Welding of Steel standard. After completing the apprenticeship program, welders must pass a final six-hour test to obtain CWB certification. Skilled Trades Ontario grants the final certificate upon successful completion of the test.

What is the frequency of testing?

At Weldtech Training, we conduct testing at various intervals during the program to facilitate plate certification with the Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB). CWB testing sessions are held approximately 6-8 times per year, allowing students to pursue plate certification as they progress in their training. For pipe certification, the testing is scheduled just prior to the program end-date, when individuals are ready to test with the TSSA (Technical Standards & Safety Authority) and AWS (American Welding Society). This approach ensures that students are adequately prepared and can demonstrate their welding skills for certification purposes. Join our welding courses and embark on a comprehensive training journey that includes regular testing opportunities for certification.

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.
