All welding and fabrication procedures for steel structures within the state of Texas are in accordance with the ANSI/AASHTO/AWS D1.5 Bridge Welding Code or the ANSI/AASHTO/AWS D1.1 Structural Welding Code. To meet the stringent requirements imposed by these codes on inspection personnel, a certification program was developed and implemented. This program provides for the required training, testing, qualification, and certification of the nondestructive testing personnel, and the training necessary to become a Certified Welding Inspector (CWI). following is an overview of that program.
