Welder Certification System

The MCAA Pipe Welding Bureau (NCPWB) Welder Certification System works closely with welders, contractors and national chapter associations.

National Certified Pipe Welding Bureau (NCPWB) Certification System


WebFirst worked closely with the Bureau to allow contractors to view and search a welder’s profile, capabilities and certifications. This creates a community of practice whereby large Construction Contractors and other stakeholders can hire, network and find information about Welders.

Although WebFirst has maintained their database and hosted the original site over the last four years with MCAA National Welders, it became apparent that an upgrade was required - in terms of maintainability, accountability, scalability, and security issues due to an outdated code base.

The NCPWB system upgrades will include:

Tracking welder records
Tracking continuity
Exchanging welder records
Issuing certification papers

Our Solution

Welder Certification System

WebFirst is in the process of completely rewriting the welder database and all existing functionality shall be undertaken, involving:

  • Overhaul of the application user interface, navigation and data entry processes (e.g. updating continuity) to allow users to quickly and effectively retrieve and enter welder and related data.
  • Revamp User Authentication and Authorization (i.e. system login and permissions)
  • Full Auditing and Logging of User Activity
  • Address selected chapter feedback
  • Upgrade to .NET Core and SQL Server 2016

Having the history – years of knowledge from working with and hosting this database, WebFirst is elated to play a key position in assisting this association with the redesign and functionality that they require. We look forward to continuing our successful working relationship with MCAA!
