On behalf of the board members, I would like to welcome you to the Northwest Section
We have a tentative schedule of planned events for the 2013/ 2014 calendar year. Dates and locations are not yet set so check our calendar often.
The Northwest section of the American Welding Society will host 2 Certified Welding Inspector and 1 Certified Welding Supervisor seminar and exam in 2014.
It is now time to start thinking about scholarships if you are going to be in a welding or welding related program next year.

The AWS Certified Welding Inspector (CWI) Seminar helps skilled, knowledgeable welders prepare for the AWS CWI exam. Seasoned instructors will teach you the material you need to know, train you to use and understand the latest technical standards, and provide tips to help you do well on the exam.
With national and international recognition in the welding industry, the CWI certification has been the benchmark companies rely on to ensure the highest level of workmanship.
Three scholarships for the 2014-15 school term that have not been awarded. Two of them, the John M. Stropki and James A. Turner, are unique in that they support nontraditional areas for the AWS Foundation: The Stropki Scholarship is for a student seeking a teaching degree in a STEM subject. The Turner Scholarship is for a student enrolled studying for a business degree. Applications are being accepted from anyone who is studying in these areas.
