Several members of the Education Services team at AWS recently had the opportunity to attend a handful of instructor-led CWI seminars. During that time, we were able to interact with the students and get some insight into how things were going for them. Collectively, we found that most students were at least somewhat familiar with the majority of the information that was being covered during the seminar. However, there was one topic that drew a complete blank from students time and time again: Welding Procedure Specifications and Procedure Qualification Records.
“What is a WPS?” “What is a PQR?” “Why are they important?” “How do I use them?”
