Every time we think about exams it gives us goosebumps. But to achieve anything what we require utmost is investment of two things: good amount of time and commitment towards achievement of the goal. Basically the test is divided into three significant sections.
Before commencing any preparation, it is important that we take a practice test and see where do we stand in terms of subject knowledge. Depending on the score you achieve during your practice test, one can design a routine to take down the preparation.
Part A consists of the basic Welding knowledge, comprising of 150 questions According to the QC1 the CWI Part A exam contains a minimum of 150 questions that must be answered within a two hour period.
Part B tests a range of inspection topics, including welding examination and non-destructive testing. This part contains at least 46 questions that must be finished in two hours. For Part B you’ll be provided with visual inspection tools, plastic replicas of welds and a sample codebook.
Part C just makes an analysis that what is the ability of the exam giver to locate and understand information in a code book. Part C of the CWI exam contains a minimum of 46 questions. All parts of the exam require you to get at least 72% of the questions correct.
Coming back to the preparation for Part A and B you are approximately required to study and understand 130 pages in depth which means giving good 20-46 hours, as preparing the welding symbols alone takes 13 -26 hours
And finally preparing for the complete course it takes 35 – 40 weeks concluding to be 10-12 hours of study in a week’s time.
