User Reviews

"With my second attempt my score climbed to a 89%"

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!

"I Passed CWI on my first attempt"

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.

"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.

Matt Owens, CWI Instructor
Matt Owens, CWI, MSI
CWI Instructor & Technical Expert

"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."

Gabe Kramer, M.Ed
CEO and Founder, SI Certs

"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.

Our course is designed for both full-time working professionals and beginners that have more time on their hands. Our quizzes and timed tests are designed to prepare you for the exam. Our coaching is designed to support you along the way. Our guarantee means we guarantee to support you until you pass - free access and continued coaching."

SI Certs VS. Classroom Seminar

SIC vs Classroom

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.
