Who should take this course?
Welders, welding foremen, welding supervisors, production managers, welding sales representatives and other welding professionals that require the mathematical skills to accurately measure the physical dimensions of welds and calculate the cost of the labor, materials, and equipment required to produce them.
Do I qualify to take this course?
The Economics of Welding Course is comprehensive, yet easy-to-understand. It serves as a comprehensive introduction for students new to the economics of welding and a detailed refresher for professionals preparing to take the CWS certification exam or implement economically sound practices.
How long do I have to complete this course?
Participants have access to the course content 24 hours a day for a period of 30 days from the date of registration. After this 30-day period, participants will have an additional 10 days to pass the completion exam. The exam can be activated before the end of the 30-day period if the student has completed all the modules.
Does this course include a completion exam?
Yes. Upon completion of the final course module, participants are prompted to take an exam designed to evaluate their comprehension of the subject matter. The completion exam consists of 40 multiple-choice questions and must be completed within a 90-minute period. Participants who do not attain the 75% passing score may attempt to retake the exam a second time. Participants who pass the exam earn a Certificate of Completion. The Certificate will arrive at the address used for registration 10 to 14 business days after the date of examination. International shipping delivery dates may vary.
Do I need to purchase any other materials?
No. All the materials and resources necessary to complete the course objectives are included.
