Laser Welding Certificate

You will gain marketable recognition through two certificates that focus on laser welding equipment, process validation, and inspection. The three certificate series incorporate the guidelines of ISO, FDA, and AWS to provide the best practice standards for the laser welding industry. The Accredited Laser Welding Professional Certification is for the primary technical professional involved in the design, engineering and/or management of laser welding parts, assemblies or operations. The Accredited Laser Welding Process Technical Support Provider Certification is for the technical support provider responsible for the hands-on set-up, calibration and operations of the laser welding process. The Accredited Laser Weld Inspector Certification acknowledges those responsible for the inspection of completed laser welds.
