Why You Should Consider Certified Welding Inspector Services

Welding is a complex process that requires high-level skills and experience, so before you consider hiring a welding professional, having a Certified Welding Inspector to confirm that you’ve selected a quality candidate by testing their procedure is a best practice to ensure a quality weld every time.

What Does a Certified Welding Inspector Do?

Certified Welding Inspectors (CWI) are responsible for analyzing completed welding projects, ensuring quality workmanship and project code compliance and requirements set by employers, designers, or local jurisdiction.

While a welding inspector’s primary function is to inspect, CWI welding experts are typically involved throughout the entire process, from selecting welders to complete the job and approving procedures to reviewing project specifications and inspecting the final weld.

What Makes a Quality Certified Welding Inspector?

A quality CWI has to have excellent communication skills to clearly understand each professional role involved in the project; they have to accurately report the status and quality workmanship of the weld to key stakeholders. CWIs are also responsible for giving constructive feedback to welders, correcting their processes when appropriate.

Certified Welding Inspectors are essential to building projects of all dimensions since they provide quality control by monitoring the entire process. AWS tests all welding professionals to ensure they are equipped with the skills and knowledge needed for industry success.
