CWB Testing and Re-Testing

Seneca King Campus offers testing for structural shielded metal arc welding CWB tickets on a demand basis. Testing is done on Monday nights and is usually available every 2 to 3 months.  Pricing is detailed in the CWB and CWR codes, and testing becomes cheaper as you test for more positions on the same night. Testing is progressive in the order of flat, horizontal, vertical up, and overhead.  If the student fails any of the position tests they are permitted one retest per position (CWR codes) within 90 days of the original test date.  If the retest is passed, then the ticket is awarded as if no failure ever occurred.

The tickets are valid for a period of 2 years from the date of testing.
The tickets are mailed to the Seneca College from the CWB, the college will contact the student to see if they want their ticket mailed or to come to King Campus to pick ticket up.

For further details or information you can contact Mike Borean, Welding Programs Coordinator by telephone 416 491-5050 ext. 55023, or by email at mike.borean@senecacollege.ca
