New welder curious about tests in general?

I will be graduating from Tulsa Welding School in like 4 months and I was curious about the basics for welding tests, like in general what do I need to remember?


here are some tips...

if at all possible , call the employer, test shop, whoever is giving the tests to get all the details you can.

practice the exact test if at all possible.

when you arrive early to take your test, be humble, ask if you can set your machine on some scrap, ask for details.

some test shop supervisors are looking for a reason to fail an arrogant SOB... dont be an arrogant SOB.
