Welding Students Earn AWS Certifications

The Welding program at Maplewood Career Center prepares students to earn three certifications offered by the American Welding Society. AWS certifications are accepted worldwide and set the standard for excellence.  Welding certifications are technically a hands-on welder qualification test that is graded off-site by a certified welding inspector. All certifications are filed with the State of Ohio through American Welding Society.
