Question 1 of 25.
While reviewing a welders qualifications you see documentation of their log showing they had not
welded with GMAW since Aug. 3, 2006. A failed retest is in the file, dated Feb 12, 2007. The final document
in the file shows they passed the retest on Feb. 13, 07.


The February 13th test is accepted if it was two welds of each type and position that the welder failed in the
first test.

the welder did not need to take the first retest

the welder is acceptable

the welder is not acceptable

Question 2 of 25.
While observing UT testing a discontinuity is detected. As the UT operator moves his probe around the
discontinuity the indication remains unchanged. The UT has most likely detected:


incomplete fusion

porosity

hollow bead

crack

Question 3 of 25.

has a maximum reflection from only one angle and the indication changes with angular movements of the
probe. The UT has most likely detected:


elongated slag

Question 6 of 25.
Prior to this job, the shop approved E90XX Electrodes during the night shift with the temperature at 16C
(60F) and heavy fog. You are now observing the welder, who has had a quiver (non-heated) full of E90XX
electrodes on his belt for 2 hours while he has been working on 3.5 (62mm) materials. Fog set in about 3
hours ago and the temperature has been 65F (18.5C) all day long. What process is acceptable?


Welder may use these electrodes for another 2 hours.

Welder may make the weld but shall have the weld heat treated for a holding time of 2.5 hours.

Must bake the electrodes for at least 2 hours at between 500F (260C) and 800F (430C).

Must bake the electrodes for at least 1 hour at between 500F (260C) and 800F (430C).

Question 17 of 25.
Which of the following conditions would be CAUSE FOR REJECTING low-hydrogen electrodes E-70XX for
use at any time?
