Santa Clarita named AWS-accredited testing center for robotic arc welding

College of the Canyons, Santa Clarita, Calif., has been designated by the American Welding Society as an accredited testing center for certified robotic arc welding (CRAW). It is one of seven colleges in the nation and the only one in California to have gained this status. CRAW certification demonstrates that an individual possesses the technical knowledge required to perform robotic arc welding in an efficient, economical, and safe manner. Individuals seeking CRAW certification can choose to become a certified technician (CRAW-T) or a certified operator (CRAW-O). The college’s first CRAW certification test administration is expected to take place in fall 2018.
