AJP Engineering works with Canadian Welding Bureau

While the name of the Canadian Welding Bureau may be new to you, if you’re involved with the welding industry at all, you’ve probably benefited from their work. The Canadian Welding Bureau or CWB, works to qualify welders and welding procedures, ensuring that industries requiring these skills receive high levels of competency and reliability.

They work with welders, Welding Engineers, companies and industries that use welding operations, certified inspectors, and Welding Supervisors. And many of the people who benefit from safe welding practices may not even know they exist.

Formed in 1947 to administer the original welding standard for structural steel, the CWB now enjoys a much expanded scope. The organization is accredited by the Standards Council of Canada as a national certification body, and administers the following CSA Standards: W47.1, W47.2, W55.3, W186, W178.1, and W48.

Via the CWB Learning Centre, the group also provides comprehensive training courses and products for many different customers.

They train Welding Supervisors, ensuring that qualified welders and welding operators are working in accordance with approved procedures. They certify Welding Inspectors, who help the fabrication industry avoid repairs and costly project delays.

They provide a public forum for certified welders to exchange information, share resources, and hold everyone in the profession to the same high standards. They ensure that Welding Engineers apply the CSA Standards for welding design and best practices. And they help Canadian companies control welding operations in the field by qualifying Welding Supervisors.

The CWB helps keep every Canadian safe by serving and improving each aspect of the welding industry.
