If you had the opportunity to pass the 3G MIG certification test in less time than it usually takes, would you take it? Great (I’m assuming there was a silent “Yes!” on your part). Let’s put aside taking the test, because first we need to tackle what material the test actually covers.
For welders interested in manufacturing or fabrication, the 3G MIG welding certification test is one of the most required certifications to have. Earning this certification enables you to weld flat, horizontal, vertical, 1G – 3G, or 1F – 3F positions.
To become qualified to weld in flat, horizontal and vertical positions, you should try to pass the American Welding Society (AWS) D1.1 3G GMAW welding certification test. The people behind GoWelding.org have put together a great guide that details what it takes to pass the 3G MIG welding certification test.
For those of you that need a visual aid, the welding experts over at WeldingTipsandTricks.com are back with a helpful welding video on 3G MIG welding certification. If you want to follow along, grab the materials listed on the side and pay close attention.
