  2. 2. Weld Tech / AWS CWI Job Duties/Essential Functions To provide weld training when necessary Responsible for Weld Certification programs Complete weld inspections Maintain Weld Audit Records Analyze weld defect and problem solve Identify, trace, and reduce costs on welding consumables and activities Maintain training and certification records Support Safety Assist Maintenance and Tool Room with welding duties Assist in all areas of manufacturing as necessary Ability to understand manufacturing prints Ability to under stand welding symbols Mandatory job Requirements Excellent oral and written communication skills Ability to teach and train individuals Good interpersonal skills Flexibility in job skills
  3. 3. Training Welding Program offers employee enhancement training options On the job training- The Welder gains experience and product knowledge by working under the supervision of certified welders. Entry level weld training for non-welder employees – Employees have the opportunity to learn the basic skill to become certified welders. Weld Tech Floor Support- Addresses training development needs on a as needed basis.
  4. 4. Welder Certifications Welders and Welding operators are Certified by an AWS Certified Welding Inspector by performing welder qualification tests based on the requirements of: •AWS D1.1 Structural Welding Code Steel. •AWS D1.2 Structural Welding Code Aluminum. •AWS D1.3 Structural Welding Code Sheet Steel •AWS D17.1 Specification for Fusion Welding for Aerospace Applications •Ground Combat Vehicle Welding Code-Steel 12479550 and supplemented with additional training and testing in Basic Visual Weld Inspection.
