Progress of the AWI

Progress of the AWI™

AWI™ Certification is now available for Welding Supervisors

A key responsibility of the AWI™ is to provide a credible, transparent and user friendly welding qualification system for its members. For some time now, the AWI™ has seen some great success in running a program for:


Certification for welders and welding supervisors – Certificate numbers 1 to 9.

The AWI™ has recently extended the program to include:


Certification for welders and welding supervisors Certificate number 10 plus;


Certification for welding supervisors – Structural steel welding.

The industry has been waiting for the return of a practical, relevant qualification, which is a cost competitive alternative to the offerings of the WTIA.

Wait no longer, the AWI™ are making this happen! AWI™ examination papers have been written and validated by industry experts that have extensive experience in the relevant disciplines. We have had some fantastic feedback from running these examinations are exampled below:

‘they are based much more on what we need to know in the workshop’


‘it was a very detailed exam but based on practical application of being a supervisor’.

The AWI™ has listened to industry, but more importantly -YOU – and have provided a certification system that measures the skills and knowledge of welding supervisors. The AWI™ is raising the bar on these important industry qualifications as well as giving you a quality alternative.

AWI™ actively supports and promotes the AS 1796 and AS 2214 Welding Supervisors qualifications and encourages all members and the Metal Fabrication Industry to embrace these qualifications.  AWI™ has established an alliance with a number TAFE Colleges around the country and takes pleasure in supporting and promoting these Colleges and programs and are now endorsing Welder Qualification AS 1796 Certificates 1 – 9, Welding supervisors AS1796 and AS2214.
