Call me - Rick Gaffney SCWI - with your questions.


When taking the CWI  exam, most all questions are multiple choice.

AWS will give you in the multiple choice selections:

  1. Incorrect answers

  2. Correct answers

  3. Most Correct Answer


Always choose the most correct answer.


A welder has been qualified for groove welding using a 12 in. schedule 80 pipe test coupon in the 2G position.

Is the welder qualified for the welding of 4 in. schedule 80 pipe?


The welder was qualified for groove welding using a 12 in. schedule 80 pipe test coupon


(he is not qualified for the 5G & 6G positions).


The more correct answer is:    Yes, but not in the 5G or 6G positions.

Taking sample exams will not prepare you for the CWI Exam.

Exams only check your knowledge of the subjects.

To properly prepare for the CWI Exam you need training with exams so you gain knowledge, and verify your knowledge with sample exams.
