Paul & Others, I hope this answers some of your questions.
Here are links to a couple of documents on the AWS website, on the CWEng program.
http://www.aws.org/certification/CWEng/cwenginfo.pdf (look at page 8 of this pdf to see what the references are. The Codes, basic engineering and welding/metallurgy).
And some information from NSPE ( NSPE was opposed to AWS's plan)
All CWEng that I know are also Professional Engineers (most took the NCEES Welding Professional Engineering exam, the Metallurgy exam or the Mechanical Exam). In my case, I took the PPE exam in 1988 in Mechanical Engineering and have been involved in the design, construction, repair and alterations of welded structures since 1978, a lot of ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel work, Code piping, some powerplant and recently structural work, bridges. I currently, work for a bridge design & fabrication company.( I came back to industry after being an Assistant Professor for 5 years).
The examination is 4 parts. Parts 1 & 2 are approximately equivalent to the FE examine. Parts 3 & 4 are more detailed, id est PPE exam style. (AWS along with NCEES used the first round tests of parts 3 & 4 to valid the NCEES Welding - PE Exam (I have been told that only 3 out of the 15 that took the test passed). The CWEng and NCEES exams were developed by Ohio State University's, Welding Engineering program (Only ABET accredited Welding Engineering program) http://www-iwse.eng.ohio-state.edu/we/ .
