American Welding Society Certifications

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, The American Welding Society (AWS) will extend certifications on a by case-by-case basis. Members must meet the following criteria:

  • Members need to be current.
  • Certifications cannot be expired.

IMPORTANT: During this time, AWS will NOT send updated credentials to individuals who receive an extension. The only proof of certification status for these individuals will be QuikCheck.

If you need additional proof of certification to verify your current status, you may request a Certification Status letter from AWS. Please send an email with your complete First and Last name, your certification number, or your Member ID.

For more information and to see if you qualify, please visit the AWS website.
