Pressure Welder: Find a recognized test administrator

Find a recognized test administrator

Recognized test administrators (previously called "certificate of recognition holders" or "welding testing agencies") are organizations 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 Welders Log Books (view signed Log Book example) and will host Class A Pressure Welder practical exams. 

To book your performance qualification test, or to book a location for your practical exam, please contact one of the following recognized test administrators.
