New AWS Manual and new MSQ (Manufacturer Standards Questionnaire) Seminars


New AWS Manual and new MSQ (Manufacturer Standards Questionnaire) Seminars

We had the first of two Seminars to introduce the new AWS Manual and to explain the correct formatting for the new MSQ test that must be written by all Manufacturing Members before October 2015.

Jeff Clermont (Ontario Association President) went through the improved formatting with the attending members to help them to firstly use the Manual to their best advantage and secondly to explain the required formatting for the new MSQ test.

Any project that is tendered on or after October 1st 2014 will need to adhere to this new manual and any Manufacturing Member that requires a GIS Certificate for projects that were tendered after this date will have to have a Manager that has successfully passed the new MSQ before a Certificate can be issued.

The Seminar was highly informative and we would urge all Companies to attend the next Seminar as it will help immensely towards writing the new test.

The second Seminar is to be held on Thursday, September 25th, 2014, 2 pm – 4 pm. Location: Toronto Construction Association 70 Leek Crescent, Richmond Hill. To register for this date, contact Hermia 416 499 4000 x 182 or Email: All Manufacturer Members will receive 1 AWS manual free and can purchase additional copies at the seminars or through AWMAC office. In addition, attendance at the seminar is considered a “participation” event and will result in a refund of your 2014 participation fee.
