CWI/CWE PREPARATORY COURSE WITH 3 AVAILABLE OPTIONS

CWI/CWE PREPARATORY COURSE: OPTION 1 CLASSROOM 2 WEEKS

Two Week Course in Classroom. This course is conducted in two consecutive weeks, Monday through Friday, with homework each night and on the weekend during the course. The first week is dedicated to learning Welding Fundamentals and how to use the API 1104 or AWS D1.1 , whichever you choose to test with. The second week is dedicated to preparation for the Practical Examination and refining your test taking skills. If you prefer to have an instructor in person for the complete presentation, then this is the course for you. Remember, there is an enormous amount of information to be presented so the course will move at a moderate pace. Completion of all daily homework assignments is a must to be successful. Driving too far each day or entertaining loved ones does not allow the total focus necessary to pack all this information in with just two weeks. A tough two weeks of complete immersion in this course is required!

CWI/CWE PREPARATORY COURSE: OPTION 2

OPTION 2 - 90 DAYS ONLINE AND ONE WEEK IN CLASSROOM

PART 1 is 90 Days Online Welding Fundamentals And Code Preparation Then Part 2 is 40 Hours In Classroom For Part B Practical Exam Preparation.  This course layout allows more time to learn the largest amount of information prior to entering the classroom environment. Once the online Welding Fundamentals and Code Preparation have been successfully completed, students should possess the fundamental knowledge and open book skills needed for the Practical Exam Preparation week. This week will be dedicated to learning the Part B Specification, working with tools and plastic replicas and refining your test taking skills. If the classroom environment and an instructor for the hands-on preparation is preferred but more time to absorb the largest part of the information is needed to pass these exams, consider this layout. This is the best approach if you are a dedicated self study student.  It takes self discipline to make yourself study on your own but students who do this option are always more relaxed in class and more positive.  Learning all the Welding Fundamentals and mastering the use of your Open Book prior to the Practical week is critical to your success so study hard and come prepared!
