General Information

Henry Ford College (HFC) prepares students to take weld certification exams. HFC is not a weld testing certification facility. Because HFC is not an AWS Accredited Testing Facility, if a student submits a written request to take the AWS certification test, or any other weld certification test, the request may be sent to a third-party vendor to both administer the weld test and to determine if the student meets the required certification. The student is responsible for all weld certification testing fees.
