Two type of Welding Examiner Certificates are issued: WE and WG series.
- WE series are certificates issued to candidates who obtained their certification by examinations. People holding a certificate with WE series are eligible to work for any ABSA-authorized welder testing organization.
- WG series were certificates issued to candidates without examination in accordance with Section 16 of the Pressure Welders Regulation. People holding this certificate are eligible to work for the welder testing organization named on their certificates.
