A - There are TWO things that you will need to do in order to get an

Alberta “B” pressure ticket.

Step 1

You have to challenge and pass the Alberta qualification certificate examination

In order to do so you must:

·         Have at least 6,750 hours and 54 months of ‘hands on” work experience as a welder.

NOTE: Time spent on supervisory or foreman duties, counter work, heading the tool crib, or on a training course is not counted as ‘hands on” work experience.

There are exceptions if the applicant has a recognized journeyperson certificate in a related trade.

To apply for a Qualification Certificate based on work experience you must:

1.       Complete all the sections of the application form.

2.       Attach supporting documents (e.g. Confirmation of Work Experience form(s), certified true copies of letters to confirm required work experience, certified true copies of certificates)

3.       Sign and date the application

4.       Submit the completed and signed application to an Alberta AIT Office.

5.       Pay the $450.00 non-refundable verification of competency fee.

If your application is approved, you will be required to attempt one written exam and one practical exam. You will have up to twelve months to successfully complete the two exams. If you are successful on the examination(s) and meet all other requirements, you may be granted an Alberta Qualification Certificate.
