Adelaide-based company, Australian Welding Solutions (AWS) has signed an agreement to be official agents for American Welding Society. This partnership means U.S. Welding Certifications are available throughout Australia and New Zealand for the first time.    

AWS Australia’s leading trainers 
AWS has been providing advanced manufacturing skills, advanced welding education and Inspection services for 10 years. They have become the training organisation of choice for the oil, gas, defence, water and mining industries, with around 2,000 participants completing courses designed by AWS. 

They are the only NATA-accredited (National Association of Testing Authorities Aust) welding engineering and welding inspection body in Australia, and the only welding inspection company in Australia who actively support research and development. With their history and credentials, AWS was the best choice as partner for the American Welding Society. 

U.S. certification allows Australia to be global contenders
The Australian manufacturing industry is in serious decline. At the same time, an increasing number of large construction projects in Australia have been specifying U.S. accreditation and standards. 

Local availability of these globally recognised certifications will provide increased employment opportunities for Australian workers on major projects both here in Australia and internationally. Local employers will save costs with no more need to import U.S. certified employees. 
Advanced education opportunities including Certified Welding Inspection (CWI)
Managing director of AWS, Neville Cornish, believes this new agreement represents a turn-around for the Australian manufacturing industry. 

“We’ve been in talks with American Welding Society (AWS) for the past year about creating this partnership, and signed the official agreement in December. We’re extremely pleased to be able to offer these examinations to advance career opportunities in Australia and the Pacific.” 

2016 programs begin in April with applications now open at
