User Reviews

I have learned how to read plans.

I want to say thank you so much for the online course that I have taken. I passed my bolting and I am currently working on the ICC structural welding through your online course. I have learned how to read plans and become a better test taker from the online courses that SI Certs has to offer.

SI Certs was a huge help.

Hi Gabe et al. I have completed the Structural Steel and Bolting course. Also, just passed the ICC GR and ICC Bolting Plans exams. The course I took with SI Certs was a huge help. I will now be preparing ICC Welding Codes using SI Certs.

Passed bolting!

I just passed bolting plans and code! The training is great. I have 47 days left on my bolting training and I'm done.

CAREER TIP:

Structural bolting is the entry point into steel and welding inspection. This certification requires no previous bolting or construction experience. It builds a foundation for ICC Welding and eventually, becoming a Certified Welding Inspector.

"The AISC is a large volume of code, so I created this course to walk you through the critical parts you need to study for the test. We spend lots of time teaching and explaining the confusing areas, showing you examples and illustrations, and giving you solid practice quizzes and tests.

We’ll teach you how to read the nuances of structural steel and bolted connections on structural drawings, and give you excellent practice questions through our study process that actually builds your plan reading skills. As always, I’m here to coach you and support you if and when you need it. We guarantee to get you passed this test!"
