Testing & Continuity:
The Training Center holds UA welding tests and proof of continuity on the last Thursday of each month. If you need to take a welding test for a UA certification or prove continuity, you must make the arrangement in advance. Click the button below to register for the next round of testing.
Welders and brazers are responsible for performing manual continuity or submitting verification of welder and/or brazer continuity by their employer for welding and brazing performed on the job. Written verification of welder and/or brazer continuity by the employer must be submitted using approved United Association continuity forms and can be returned by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are working and have used your welder or brazer certification on the job prior to the date your certification expired, the date you last welded or brazed on the job must be used to submit verification of continuity by the employer. Welder and/or brazer continuity forms may be accepted after the date of expiration of certification if the form has been filled out correctly by the company representative responsible for being aware that the welder/brazer performed the welding/brazing process is verified. Once a welder or brazer obtains verification of continuity from the employer it is the responsibility of the welder and/or brazer to submit verification of their continuity to maintain current welder/brazer certifications.
If you are not employed and must perform manual continuity to keep your certification(s) current, manual continuity must be performed and accepted prior to teh date your certification(s) expire(s).
