welding cert help?

by Brian
(Portland, TN)

I have been a mig welder now for right at 2 years and the company I worked for didn't offer certification. The company went under about 6 months ago and no one will hire me with out being certified. Dont get me wrong I have and can pass any test they throw at me. My question is. Are there any places in or close to Portland TN that I can get certified? Any advice would be most appreciated.



The AWS American Welding Society has some test facilities scattered across the USA but I did not see any in your state.

you can copy and paste the link above in your browser and then click on the link on that page that says ATFs USA to find the closest one to you.

then call them to ask about setting up a test.

it will probably cost somewhere around 150-200 bones but worth it if it gets you a job
