Brainscape’s collection of over 1,000 adaptive, digital Welding Inspection Basics flashcards comprehensively covers the content you need to know in order to ace the American Welding Society’s (AWS) Fundamental Exam. And our app will make preparing so much more efficient and convenient!

Memorizing the body of knowledge for the AWS Certified Welding Inspector (CWI) Fundamentals 150-question exam can be overwhelming. But with 1,000+ flashcards covering nine key subjects, Brainscape’s collection of Welding Inspection Basics flashcards allow you to tackle your studies in much smaller, more manageable sessions.

Curated by Caity ‘Madskills’ Brown, an AWS CWI, who is both a specialty welder and an educator of an Inspection Training Program, these flashcards will help you study exactly the content you need in order to do exceedingly well, and more efficiently too. This collection has also undergone meticulous scrutiny by other inspection professionals and what you can expect is in extremely close alignment with the AWS ‘Body of Knowledge’ and Madskills’ CWI training class.

What to expect from Brainscape’s Welding Inspection Basics flashcards

The AWS CWI Fundamentals is a two-hour, closed-book exam with 150 questions. You have less than a minute to answer each question so you either know the answer, or you don’t. Without confidently knowing the facts presented by Brainscape’s Welding Inspection Basics flashcards, you just won’t have a fair shot at passing Part A of the CWI exam.

As the world’s most effective memory-building tool, Brainscape is the perfect resource for building this fundamental foundation. Our flashcards cover Nondestructive Examination, Metallurgy, Welding and Cutting Processes, Symbols, Visual Examination and Discontinuities, Safety, Destructive Testing, Terminology and Joint Design, and Math and Measuring.
