Remote Test Facility Program

The Remote Test Facility Program was designed for technical high schools and community college welding programs who wish to offer welder certification to their students.

The welding instructor, (as a CWI) can witness student's tests in their weld shop. Instructor must hold a current AWS CWI certification. Instructors without CWI certification can opt to take a CWI course and exam, or utilize WTTI's inspectors to witness the tests at your facility. Students have the confidence of performing their certification tests in a familiar environment: their own school.

How do I become a WTTI Remote Test Facility (RTF)?
Step #1:
Contact WTTI to receive a Remote Test Facility Application Packet.
Step #2: Complete the application and the self audit. Return the completed forms along with payment and necessary documentation.
Step #3:
WTTI will issue a certificate demonstrating that you have been accepted as a Remote Test Facility and provide you with the documentation to begin operation.

Once you have been accepted as an RTF, this is how it works:

  • Access the RTF Portal using your username and password.
  • Find the RTF Order Form under the Certification Test Documents heading.
  • Complete the online form.
  • RTF's can use a PO or supply credit card information. Kits paid for by the RTF will be sent upon receipt of the order form.
  • If an individual elects to pay for his/her own test, then an invoice will be sent to the individual once WTTI receives the order form. The order will be processed after the payment has been made. A $15 fee will be included.
  • WTTI will send the Certification Test Kit to the RTF.
  • You (as the CWI) will supervise the test at your facility, then repack and return the sample to WTTI in the original postage paid box.
  • WTTI will process the test through our Accredited Lab.
  • WTTI will issue a Laboratory Test Report, Welder Qualification Document, Welder Certification ID Card, and Welder Qualification Maintenance Log for each passing test.
  • Documentation will be sent to the RTF.
