CSWIP: Welding Inspector Exam Quiz!

Do you know what a welding inspector does? A welding inspector is a technical expert who examines welded metal items in buildings, infrastructures, and manufactured goods, which safeguards the parts as they are securely bonded. Welding inspectors investigate the bonds and links between metals. In other words, they safety check to see if the weld has been completed correctly. This quiz will help you pass the exam. Good luck with it.
