Recognized test administrators (previously called "certificate of recognition holders" or "welding testing agencies") are institutions or individuals that administer pressure welding tests.

Performance qualification tests will remain valid provided no greater than six months have passed since the qualified welding process was last used under the supervision and control of the licensed contractor or recognized test administrator.

Under the new pressure welder program, recognized test administrators will also be responsible for signing pressure welder logbooks (view signed logbook example) and administer pressure welder certificate of qualification practical exams as per relevant syllabuses: 

To complete your certification or welding performance qualification (WPQ) test, please book your exam with one of the following recognized test administrators.
