CWB Weld Test

CWB Performance Qualifications

AXIS is known for doing two things better than any other company in the industry.

  1. We are at the top of our game when it comes to inspections. We’ve provided inspections for some of the biggest projects in Canada and are very proud of our team.
  2. We are known for our training services and testing at our two Weld Test Centres in Winnipeg and Brandon, Manitoba.

Our Weld Test Centres offer welders the opportunity to obtain certification and qualifications that are yearned for in our industry. One of the qualifications we offer is through the CWB, or Canadian Welding Bureau.

As authorized test centre for the CWB, we test new and current welders on their performance for CWB qualifications.

The Canadian Welding Bureau certifies companies, inspection organizations, inspectors, and welding consumables through a review and qualification process to ensure that they meet the requirements for a variety of product and safety codes as well as standards such as CSA W47.1, CSA W47.2, CSA W55.3, CSA W186, CSA W178.1, CSA W178.2 and CSA W48.

In order to be able to become a certified welding or welding inspection company, these organizations are required to have their welders qualified so they can follow the approved welding procedures and either meet or exceed the necessary requirements.

Whether it’s visual, destructive or non-destructive testing, anyone who wants to work for these certified companies and achieve some employment security needs to be able to successfully complete both written and practical exams.

At AXIS, we understand that most welders don’t enjoy having to test. There’s a reason we work with fire and not with textbooks. That’s why our Weld Test Centres are specifically designed to work with people who learn all different ways to ensure they can not just meet, but exceed the testing requirements.

Of course, you’re welcome to come to us just for the testing, but we also offer numerous training and practice opportunities at both of our Weld Test Centres.
