This program satisfies the training standard set by the BC Industry Training Authority (ITA) for:
Modular training is for welders who track their technical training and practical work-based hours in a Welder Logbook, and are registered with the ITA upon certification.
With successful completion of Welder B technical training, 1950 work-place hours, and successful completion of the Welder Red Seal exam (with the exception for those who completed Modular B training prior to April 1, 2012), welders will receive a Certificate of Qualification as a B Welder and the B Stamp in their logbook from the ITA, making them eligible to qualify to test for pressure (PWP) testing in British Columbia. Also upon completion of the Welder B program students will write the inter-provincial (Red Seal) welder exam. Once you have accumulated 4,500 work-place hours, welders receive Red Seal, interprovincial certification and Red Seal stamp in their logbook.
With successful completion of Welder A and 3,450 work-place hours (to accumulate to a total of 4,500 hours), welders receive the Certificate of Qualification as an A Welder and the A Stamp in their logbook from the ITA.
