Performance qualification tests are required by various code bodies, such as AWS, ASME, API.
Certification is a simple concept: it is a written testimony that a person has the necessary qualifications to perform the functions that he/she was certified to do.
With every welding certification test we administer, NIAC has a quick, precise, hands-on class. This ensures the welder understands the proper fit-up of the testing coupon, the parameters of his process, such as Welding Procedure Specification (WPS). We encourage and support candidates, and give them all the necessary tools and knowledge to set them up for success.
Certification means business, and that is why NIAC's services are important to you. Certification is usually performed in response to customer, government, or code requirements, but it is also done to develop business or as a defence against possible litigation. If your welders are certified then you have a big competitive edge in winning contracts and expanding your business.
Certification tells customers that and employers that you have the training, knowledge, and hands on skill and experience to do the job right, and that you have made a commitment to quality welding standards and public safety.

Professional Welding Certifications boost earnings and prestige, Certification is mandatory in many instances where liability and public safety is an issue, state and local building codes requires Certification and government agencies expect it.
