The Grade B Certificate of Competency permits the holder to engage in pressure welding subject to the limitations prescribed in the Pressure Welders Regulation and described on the performance qualification card held by the holder.

This directory currently applies only to valid Grade B welders who have completed a performance qualification test leading to a performance qualification card. Performance qualification cards issued to Tack Welders, Machine Welders, Grade C Welders and performance qualification cards issued through fabrication shops are not included in this directory at this time.

The “Alberta Performance Qualification Card Directory” provides the following information:
• pressure welder’s name
• file number (W)
• performance qualification card number
• welding process the welder is authorized to perform
• performance qualification card expiry date
• the testing organization where the test was performed

Effective October 16th, 2018, testing organizations will begin the process of uploading their performance qualification card records to this directory. The contents of the online directory will be maintained by the independent testing organizations that administer the tests and issue the qualification cards. The information contained therein, is the responsibility of the testing organization.

Please note that it will take some time (several months) for testing organizations to upload their records during this initial transition period.

You MUST contact the testing organization where the test was performed if the performance qualification card that you are looking for does not appear on this directory, or if the information that appears on this directory is incorrect.

This directory will be refreshed nightly.

Privacy Statement: This service is provided for the pressure equipment industry to verify performance qualification cards. The information is not to be used for any commercial, marketing or fundraising purposes.
