Continuity Instructions and Information:

Welders and brazers are responsible for performing manual continuity or submitting verification of welder and/or brazer continuity by their employer for welding and brazing performed on the job.  Written verification of welder and/or brazer continuity by the employer must be submitted on approved United Association continuity forms and can be returned via FAX at (408) 453-0104 or by email to continuity@pttc393.org.  Please download the Welder Continuity Form above.

If you are working and have used your welder or brazer certification on the job prior to the date your certification expired, the date you last welded or brazed on the job must be used to submit verification of continuity by the employer.  Welder and/or brazer continuity forms may be accepted after the date of expiration of a certification if the form has been filled out correctly by the company representative responsible for being aware that the welder/brazer performed the welding/brazing process being verified.  Once a welder or brazer obtains verification of continuity from the employer it is the responsibility of the welder and/or brazer to submit verification of their continuity in order to maintain current welder/brazer certifications.

If you are not employed and must perform manual continuity to keep your certification(s) current, manual continuity must be performed and accepted prior to the date your certification(s) expire(s).  Please review the welder and brazer lab schedules in order to find a convenient time within the schedule for you to perform manual verification of continuity.  In the event you have an emergency and must perform manual continuity prior to your expiration date(s) at a time other than what can be accomodated by scheduled sessions, please contact Kevin Campbell in order to schedule a time to perform your manual verification of continuity.  Please try to avoid emergencies!

Please note that there is no testing in the months of August and December.  Testing is scheduled for 4:30 p.m., unless otherwise notified. The welding and brazing labs are open to all members on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. for welding and brazing continuity and to prepare for a UA weld certification.
