Code Training That Actually Works

As you can see, we spent a lot of time and effort with the plan reading training. That doesn't mean we forgot about the code. We also teach our students how to pass the S2C Structural Welding Codes Exam.

13 Modules About the Code

This course has 13 modules to prepare you for the ICC test. These modules cover the subjects you need to learn to pass the exam.

  1. Introduction to Welding
  2. Weld Types and Welding Symbols
  3. General Requirements and Design
  4. Prequalified Welding Procedure Specifications
  5. Qualifying a Welding Procedure Specification
  6. Qualifying Welding Personnel
  7. Fabrication Requirements
  8. Inspection Requirements from AWS D1.1
  9. Inspection Requirements from AISC 360 and AISC 341
  10. Stud Welding and Existing Structures
  11. Tubular Steel Requirements
  12. Sheet Steel Welding
  13. Reinforcing Steel Welding

You'll learn about the fundamentals of welding, qualifying welders, creating welding procedures, understanding weld processes, base and filler metal, weld types, symbols, and inspecting weld quality for structural steel, decking, and rebar.

Students from all levels of understanding will benefit from this course. If you're a seasoned inspector, we'll teach you engineering principles and help you refine your knowledge of the craft. Newer inspectors will gain a strong welding foundation. They will be able to inspect in the field with knowledge and skill in a short amount of time.

The ICC Structural Welding Special Inspection Certification qualifies you to verify welds on small and large projects all over the U.S. and abroad. This course also serves as an entry point for the American Welding Society Certified Welding Inspector (CWI) Certification.

How to Remember the Material

Research from education psychologists shows that taking quizzes frequently is one of the best ways to learn. Therefore, at the end of each module, you'll take a quiz. These quizzes are very important for letting you know if you understood the material. If you did well on the quiz, you can move on to the next module. But if you struggled, we recommend reviewing the module again.

When you're done with all the code modules, you can take a timed practice test that looks like the S2C Structural Welding Codes Exam.

We've found that being prepared is the best way to calm your nerves when taking the exam. We want you to be prepared as much as possible so if you're not sure about anything, leave us a question in the chat box and we'll reply within 24-48 hours with expert advice.

Student Reviews

Since 2011, we've been helping people get certified with our online special inspection training courses. But don’t take our word for it. Here are some great reviews from our students.

I Passed ICC Welding!

Charles H.

I was nervous to take the Structural Welding Certification as I've heard its one of the hardest ICC Certifications there is. I took the Structural Welding Class and with the help of SI Certs, passed the test. I've also passed the Reinforced Concrete Certification with the help of SI Certs.

They have done an excellent job breaking everything down to make it easy to understand. The ability to work at your own pace is so great and their staff is there to help at the click of a button. There is no better, easier, and cost effective way to get your ICC Certifications than SI Certs.

Thanks you guys again for all your help!

Newly Certified – Passed First Try

Jeff B.

I found the plans reading section to be invaluable to my preparation. As someone who has had quite a bit of experience reading transportation plans but a relatively little amount of experience reading plans for vertical construction, practicing these sections with the included practice plans sets, drilling down, again and again, from general to specific information, allowed me to walk into the test with the mindset that although the answers may be difficult to find, they were in fact somewhere in those plans.

If I continued to follow the methodology that I had learned and practiced in the modules, I would eventually find my way to the answer. I never panicked, but just kept trudging along having confidence in the process I learned. Of particular value to me were the explanations to the plans section practice test in the answer key; they detailed, step-by-step, the process I should have followed whenever I missed a question.

Another great trick was the suggestion that should the schedules not all be provided on a dedicated "schedule" page (and they most assuredly will not be), that I use the provided white board and dry erase marker to create an index of the schedules peppered throughout the plans — it was a real lifesaver.

The online modules were easy to navigate and understand and what was particularly useful to me was that I was able to access them using my phone or company issued iPad - allowing me to turn down-time in the truck into productive study time for the exam.

There Were Three Key Aspects of the Course That Were Most Valuable.

Mark Y.

Your course helped me organize my studies and gave me the confidence I needed going into the exam. There were three key aspects of the course that were most valuable to me.

First, organizing the exam components into clear and concise study modules that I could tackle at my own pace. The quizzes at the end of each module let me know if I was ready to move onto the next module.

Second, the full set of plans was a great study aid which helped with that portion of the exam.

And third, the timed practice exam with alternating questions each time you take it was most valuable because it helped me understand the pace I needed to set for the exam. When I went for the exam, I was ready thanks to your course.
