  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.

continues on page 14  Welder Qualification—Type and Position Limitations


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. 


14. Upgrading of Certification

14.1 Applicants whose scores on each part of the examination meet the requirements of 6.2.2 of the QC1 standard but did not meet the experience requirements of 5.2.2 of AWS B5.1 may request an upgrade to the CWI level once the experience requirements are met.

 14.1.1 The period of validity of CWI certification for individuals who have upgraded in accordance with 14.1 shall not exceed the original period of CAWI certification.

 14.2 The CWI shall not upgrade to the SCWI certification level without complying with the requirements of 5.1, 5.2, and 6.1 of this standard.
