We strongly encourage CWI applicants who have attended our Seminars, to also attend the AWS Official CWI Seminar hosted by the American Welding Society's Education Department on the week preceeding the exam.

This will provide a last minute review, a chance to ask questions and get the perspective from a different instructor. This "training formula" provides best chances of passing this extremely dificult exam the first time.
