I know about the certification tests. I have welder friends in the oil fields and we do a lot of steam injection oil recovery here so the welders need to be x-ray certified for all positions on SC80, J and K grades, and extra strong grades for steam service. Not as sexy as the stuff you are certified in but to get an x-ray weld lying on your back in a muddy ditch at mid-night when it is windy and 25deg takes a pretty good welder!
I'll stick w/ my two semesters of welding classes in jr. college and 30 yrs of goofing around in my shop thank you!
