All Local 744 Common Arc Welders are responsible for making sure welding qualifications are updated and maintained.
Updates should include all applicable processes: SMAW, GTAW AND FCAW/GMAW. Contractors are only obligated to send in updates for the process used on the job, you must request that they update you for additional processes. You may be asked to perform a non-productive weld for updating purposes.
If you are working out-of-town, it is important to notify the QC Manager that you are a Common Arc welder and request an update when the job is finished.
We encourage you to follow-up two to three weeks after the job to verify the update was submitted. You can check your status by accessing the Boilermaker Manpower Delivery System and viewing your profile.
