"I would've failed had I not taken SI Certs' course"
Just wanted to give a HUGE thank you to you all at SI Certs for helping me pass my CWI exam on the first try!!
I did also waste a lot of money by taking the AWS seminar along with SI Certs. And I can say without a doubt that I would've failed had I not taken SI Certs' course. AWS should take notes from the SI Certs curriculum.
This is my third certification through SI Certs and I have gotten three others to use this program. Thanks again!

"My scores were awesome"
First I wanted to share that I passed my CWI exam with flying colors. My scores were awesome... Part A - 92%, Part B - 87%, Part C - 98% for a composite score of 92%!!
I also took part in the AWS week long seminar and I can honestly say that without SI Certs prior to that seminar I would have been lost. I was heads above others in the seminar because of what I learned through your platform. I had a very solid understanding of the intricacies of the test, the format of the code book, the necessary inspection tools and the replicas. It really made the seminar more of a review for me while reinforcing what I already learned through SI Certs. All in all, I was very pleased with your program and give credit to SI Certs for my success with the CWI exam.
Thanks again for everything.

"Seriously, the best customer service I have EVER experienced"
Take the courses!
If you're someone who can study on their own but would like some structure, any SI Certs course is for you. I have purchased all 3 CWI courses and the reinforced concrete course from SI Certs and have passed both the CWI and reinforced concrete exams the first time around. I plan to take another course with SI Certs (PT or masonry) because of the success rate.
P.S. Shout out to Gabe and the SI Certs team. Seriously, the best customer service I have EVER experienced.

"I was really impressed"
The CWI Exam is tough, but the toughest part for me was the Part B. I attended other training prior to taking the exam and while I achieved a passing score on Part A & C I only scored a 70% on the Part B...I was desperate to pass my Part B on the second attempt but with such a busy schedule my options were very limited. I was really impressed by SI Certs offering online training in conjunction to the Welding Replicas and Toolkit for hands on practice. With my second attempt my score climbed to a 89% and I owe it all to the time I spent practicing with SI Certs' material!

"Passed my CWI on the first try"
Guys, I can't thank you enough for your CWI training course. I signed up for the course to become a CWI after being in the Machining trade for 15 years. I had limited training in welding and weld practices, and your course made it very easy to study and get up to speed. Your course was truly what I needed. You provide all the necessary topics and tricks needed to become a CWI. I took the test and I passed on my first time through using the techniques and information provided in your course. I can't thank you enough for making a great course.

"Average score 88%"
Just want to tell you that today I have gotten my scores:
Part A: 93%
Part B: 80%
Part C: 92%
Average score 88%.
I really appreciate your help through this time and believe without your course this wouldn't be possible. Thanks a lot!

"Yours was the closest thing to the actual part B exam"
Hello. I just wanted to say thanks for all of your help. I passed my CWI part B retake with 85%. I believe that of the several online courses that I've taken, yours was the closest thing to the actual part B exam. I would recommend your course to anyone who wants to get their CWI. I will be taking some ICC courses soon and I'll be purchasing them from you.

I would like to inform you that I have cleared my CWI Exam. I got the result two days ago. Thanks for your help, and thanks to Matt too. I did all of the three parts, and this was my first attempt.

"Hello, I'm Matt, your personal coach for CWI training. I first took and passed the CWI exam in 2010. The exam was extremely difficult and most of those I took the test with failed. The seminar was an information overload, and memorization tactics didn't work."
"I spent countless hours developing an online curriculum that lays out your path to preparing for the CWI test. On top of that, I'll be your personal coach through SI Certs so you're never alone in your studies. I'm just one click away."
"You cannot master the CWI concepts by cramming information from a condensed seminar. SI Certs isn't instructor-dependent - that means you don't have to wait on us for anything. You can study faster or more slowly, anytime day or night.

SI Certs VS. Classroom Seminar
Until now, we've prepared for the CWI test by attending a week-long, in-person seminar. But this method is difficult to learn everything you need to pass the exam. Many people find these seminars inadequate because they teach too much information in too short of time.
SI Cert's approach allows you to take your time and truly learn the codes. This translates to better chances to pass the exam and become a successful CWI. We start you from the beginning by helping you understand everything from basic welding to metallurgic principles. These topics are covered in AWS' pre-seminar.
We also offer tips and tricks for navigating the most difficult questions you'll find on the exam. Our online coaching is also available to help you all along the way.
