Technical Documents (pdf)
NOTE: While the AWS CWEng has established excellent credentials, qualification to this specification alone may not legally qualify the engineer to provide technical services to the public. Contract documents, building or jurisdiction laws may require technical services to be performed under the direction and responsibility of others such as a registered Professional Engineer. The AWS CWEng designation DOES NOT imply the status of a registered Professional Engineer (P.E.) under the laws of any state or other governmental entity.
