Student comments about our training:
The 80 Hour CWI PDH Course taken to renew my 9 Yr. CWI was great.
Appreciate the info you provided to me prior to the course also.
Hope to see you again.
The SSC training is an excellent alternative to Boot Camp which typically requires taking a week away from home and work to attend, and with considerably greater expense. The ability to maintain this certification without disrupting work and home life (much) is key.
I have received the email. I found the class easy to follow and very convenient. All questions pertaining to the program were answered quickly. I would definitely recommend your service to others. Thank you again
Oh, forgot to say, yes you have permission to use anything I say about your training. To me it is the best and quickest way to get the hours needed for continuing education, and get to do it at your own pace and at the times and places of your choosing. This is my 2nd Training for 9 year newsletter that I have received from Son-set Consultants.
I received all files for 9 yr renewal. I am fine with you using any comments I have about your training program. I would like to say it was great refresher coarse. I wish I would have known about this before I took my CWI test. I would have felt way more comfortable going into it. I will and already have recommended this coarse to several people.
Thank you for your services.
You may use my comments as follows:
Training program was professional and user friendly.
Training courses were direct and applicable to CWI job requirements.
Questions by email were addressed quickly and clearly.
I recommend Son Sets AWS CWI training. It has 24 hour access, great NDT, weld fundamentals, and metallurgy sections. I also like the weld symbols, UT & RT and weld code look up sections. There is even a math review. All forms needed to renew are included; eye exam, application, etc., plus a checklist. It is a solid program.
I would like to say that Son Consultants Training LLC,9 year CWI renewal training program
was very user friendly, very informative and if I had any questions all I had to do was call
you. I have several friends that are CWI's like myself that are coming up on their 9 year
renewal. I will certainly recommend Son Consultants.
You absolutely have my permission to use this email to let fellow CWI's know about
Son Consultants Training.
Thank You, R. W.
Thank you Rick. I would strongly recommend this training and certification to all.
Thank you very much. I would recommend this 9 year renewal to anyone that needs to renew there CWI. again Thank you.
You may post this on your Web page. A. L.
Good morning Rick.
I did receive your email with 4 attachments.
Thank you for your course and your help.
We tend to focus on what we deal with daily and tend to neglect other aspects of being a welding inspector.
Your course brought this to light for me in a very eye opening way.
I need to broaden my focus and continue to revisit all areas of welding inspection and processes and not get locked into a tiny focus area.
Welding inspection truly is a life long learning process.
Thank you again and keep up the good work.
I thought your training course was pretty thorough. I would recommend the course to anybody looking for training hours.
Thank You. P. C.
Hi Rick, just a quick thank you for your informative CWI 9 year renewal training service. I like to the fact that the program was available 24 hours a day at my convenience. Your written instructions on the website were clear and understandable. I also appreciate your fast response and additional information sending me my 80 PDH certificate. I am 100% satisfied and recommend your service to anyone seeking to qualify for the CWI 9 year re-certification. Thank you, D. M.
Just wanted to mention your 9 year CWI renewal online class was great and very convenient. It brushed me up on some stuff that I had forgotten. Your quick response was greatly appreciated, great customer service, by the way.
I look forward to using your services in the future.

I want to say how pleased I was to utilize the SON SET CONSULTANTS TRAINING, 9 year renewal training package.
The online courses were easy to use; informative and the ability to do them on my schedule made the choice even better.
Additionally your availability and quick response to questions I had; as well as SON SET completing and returning the required certificate and application documents overnight is way above the rest of the training companies out there.
I have utilized SON SET TRAINING courses previously and I will continue to utilize SON SET TRAINING services in the future.
Hi Mr. Gaffney,
I was just wanting to let you know that i passed the CWI exam that i took Oct 1st. I just wanted to say thank you for helping me regarding preparation for the exam. I was wondering if you had any advice about getting my first inspection job without traveling since i would like to stay local because of my family. Any advice would be appreciated and thanks once again for your services.

Received my test results last Friday. My results qualify me for CWI Certification!
Part A: 77%
Part B: 85%
Part C :82%
Average of 81%
I thought I did a little better, but, still received my CWI Certification.
Is there some kind of form to fill out, for feedback on your training? If so, please e-mail it to me. By the way, your training & my code book were the only two things I used for my training. It worked!
I wanted to thank you, once more, for your online CWI Exam prep training package. I received my results today and passed with flying colors. Your training regime had no small part in my success. This has been a goal of mine for a long time.
Thank you.-Cody Trigg
Just received my score back on my retest of Part B. First time around I scored a 70 just missing the mark. After taking your Part B online course I increased my score 17 points in 8 weeks. Thanks for your help!
BILLY J. YOUNG
Thanks for the course. I couldn’t have done it without your help. I will most defiantly pass on what you have helped me with. I have been plugging you as much as I can. Now the question is, what to do now?
Thanks again, Rick!
Dear Rick Gaffney,
I appreciate for your help and prompt replies for the questions I made while proceeding the training. It was really convenient that I could use my free time that does not affect my work. I am satisfied with the training materials that consist of kind explains and useful photo & pictures. they were also great for reminding each of the training subjects.
I am writing to say thanks for the Son Set Consultants Material that helped me through the AWS CWI three part examination. For those that think $700 is too costly for the online material, consider the following. Retake costs are: $595 for all three exams, plus motel, and transportation. Do the math, a retake can easily run $1,000. I should have purchased the Son Set Material before the initial exam, not after I failed the first round. I am happy to say I achieved my CWI with the Son Set Material, and plan to return when it is time for the 9 year renewal.
Thank you very much for the training that I received and the conformation of completion I received today. It was great, I work a lot and I could take my time and train when I was fresh and could learn. You hit me on some things I don't have a lot of experience in (need to look into right). The thing that meant the most to me is when I sent to you my completion, I ask my bride if I should ask for a mail receipt and her answer was that they have always gotten right back to you, right, so I think you can wait a couple of day's and then maybe call. My answer was yep and you replied before I got back from work. The only way I can repay your for your support and patience is to support you training to my company and our CWI inspectors needing 9 year training. I will delete my training, I know it is probably frozen, but out of respect.
Thank you very much,
Jeffrey E. Smith
Receipt acknowledged. Thanks much for this type training. Much more beneficial for me to actually get something out of rather than cram for and take another recertification test. Thanks again
Just wanted to let you know. I took my test on 9-19-15. I received my results today.
Thanks for everything.
Good morning Mr. Gaffney.
Just wanted to start by saying thank you for your course. I just received my results for my CWI Part B exam and I passed. Your training was very helpful.
Rick: Thank you for the 9 year CWI recertification training (80 Hr PHD). Some of us cannot “just take off work” to meet the requirements per QC1 and your training provided a means to meet those requirements. As a CWI going on 18 years now, I have seen numerous changes in the “working environment“ and codes that are utilized. While refreshing ones memories in the basic “ how it’s done” methods, it would be nice to see a fresh approach to the modern day activities of the inspector and his duties. Our jobs have involved into limiting liability for ourselves, our employers and of course safety for the general public. Perhaps, a slight shift towards the document side of our responsibilities coupled with ethical “do’s and don’ts” would greatly help the CWI in training. Thanks once again
Mark E. Eddy
Thank you for providing the option to achieve my 80 hours of training in the comfort of my home. In my opinion you provide the best value for the working man, who cannot afford to miss work. I would recommend your service to others for sure. Jerry Jarvis AWS CWI
Son Set Consultants Training, LLC Son Set Consultants was very helpful with me getting my 9yr renewal. They were very patient while letting me work at my own pace. Anytime I had any questions concerning the program they were very prompt in returning my emails or my phone calls. I was very satisfied with the program and the way it was set up. Thanks again for the help. I will be a returning customer.
I wanted to let you know that I have successfully passed my CWI examination. Your course was wonderful and completely prepared me for the test. Thank you so much and look forward to using some other service you offer in the future.
Your training allowed me to pass the CWI on the first try! My Part B could have been a lot better, but did not devote as much time as I wanted to this review. Same with the D1.1 No fault to your training, just ran out of time. Son Set training filled in many areas I was lacking from other training and acted as a review to keep knowledge fresh until the exam date. Thank you again, I could not have passed without your help!!

I wanted to let you know I passed my CWI exam. Your training was very thorough and I felt very prepared. I finished the fundamentals in an hour and used the other hour to check my answers. Thank you for the course and your quick responses. I have already recommended this training to several people.
Thanks so much for all your assistance with my 9 year recertification training. I really appreciate the quick response in returning my emails and supplying the information needed. I found this course the most reasonable route for me to gain the required training for my 9 year renewal. I was able to complete the training on line at my own pace which meant no lost time on the job for myself or my employer plus with the favorable cost savings of not having to attend the AWS Boot Camp as an alternative. If you need anything additional from me please let me know and you have my permission to use my comments on your web page.
I have completed the part B training and have been notified by AWS that I have passed my Part B Practical exam and have achieved my CWI certification.Thanks for a great online training course.
Rick, I just wanted to inform you that I received confirmation that I achieved my CWI certification. Thanks for your help with the online training and the 40 training hours.

Dear Rick,I am now a CWI.Thanks for your training.
I took the CWI exam in OHIO in August of this year. I (as you know) studied your programs religiously. I am proud to inform you that I passed! I wanted to thank you for a comprehensive program that covers more than enough information to ready you for the exam. I thank GOD that HE led me to your site. Many of the test participants upon learning of your online training stated that they wished they had known of it beforehand.
Again thanks......and GOD bless!
