Question about becoming a certified welder?

Someone (a some what unreliable source) was trying to tell me that you can get certified in each different arc welding rod. Is this true? I thought a certification meant that you can run all the arc welding rods, a tig welder, a mig welder, gas welder, a cutting torch, a plasma cutter, etc.

Also a few years ago I took a welding test that I didn't pass. The test was 2 v groove butt joint 7018 welds. One was a vertical weld, and one was an overhead. What would I have received If I had passed this test? Would I have received any kind of certification, or just college credit I could use toward a certification?

Thanks for any comments

The AWS certification book is literally a few hundred pages. You certification is based on the type of joint, the weld position, the welding type, the filler metal type, the metal thickness, and a few other criteria I probably forgot. For instance, you a 4G weld using solid wire on 1/4" v-groove plate will not transfer over to 4G welding on 1/4" v-grooved plate using duel shield. There is also a huge difference between using a backing plate and not using a backing plate. Basically, you want to look at getting a D1.1 certification for a general certification in the type/style/metal thickness/position then get the specialized certifications after you get hired by a company.

If you had passed the test then you would have gotten SWAM certification on a 3G and 4G weld on whatever thickness material metal you were working on. I can't say for sure if the rod type would matter, but I would like to say probably not. You would need to verify it with the AWS. Certification testing is certification testing. It is completely an AWS thing where you would get a profession certificate, but it would in no way affect your college credit unless the college wanted to count it for something.
