Certified Welding Inspectors are responsible for the visual inspection and quality testing of structural steel welds and bolted connections. They usually work with construction or manufacturing companies that produce large structures. Workers in this field partner with other technicians and professionals to complete routine field tasks and ensure welds are securely fastened. They review welds in new and existing buildings, storage tanks, piping, and bridges to determine the structural integrity of each project.
