AWS Accredited Testing Facility

Southwest Tech is an American Welding Society (AWS) Accredited Testing Facility. We offer testing for folks looking for certifications in welding. Centrally located in the Midwest, we are close to many regional airports for those traveling from outside the region.

  • We can test to any code in any position on plate or pipe.
  • Testing is performed on Mondays and Fridays at the Southwest Tech campus, or by special appointment.
  • Testing on certain material types for shapes and thicknesses that we do not have in stock, may require additional lead time.

For inquiries about specific testing capabilities or in-stock materials, to schedule a test, or receive information about pricing, please contact or fill out the inquiry form on this page.
