CWB Welder Test - 1 position

WELO 1054

CWB Welding Test 1 position. This is not a course.

Upon registration, please contact us at 905-721-3052 to confirm your test position. Practice time may be available for an additional fee. Please discuss this with us when you call to confirm your test position.

The testing will take place in the Welding Shop located in the Whitby Campus, 1610 Champlain Ave, Whitby ON L1N 6A7. Testing is in partnership with the Canadian Welding Bureau.

The student is required to bring valid identification and provide any documentation of welding tickets from previous positions for upgrading to higher positions. The student will also be required to provide and wear proper PPE in the welding shop, which includes safety glasses, safety boots and gloves. Welding helmets and leather jackets can be provided by the college.

There will be a 30-minute setup time, qualification orientation and testing time of 45 minutes per plate, as per CWB CSA Qualification Standards.

When completed, the Welding Instructor will prepare and perform the destructive testing on the test plates, then have the CWB inspector interpret the results. Upon a successful result, the CWB will issue a welding ticket in the student’s name. It will be sent to the college and then will be mailed to the student.

Upon successful passing of your test assemblies, you will receive a CWB Card that is valid for a period of two years. Once an individual is employed by CWB Certified company, the company may request a transfer of qualification in order to obtain a welder card in their name.


For safety equipment, you will need safety boots/shoes, safety glasses and leather welding gloves.  If you have your own welding helmet, please bring it.  If not, you may borrow one of ours for the duration of the course.  We will supply leather shop coats (cloth shop coats are not acceptable).  Testing begins at 6:10pm. Fee includes HST.
