A 3G and 4G plate test taken together is a common test and qualifies for all positions for AWS structural code.

You mostly see Brad Goodman TIG welding aluminum but he has been on the road working with millwright crews and doing a lot of Stick welding.
So his employer wants him to get a 7018 Stick certification on 3G and 3G plates.

Brad Goodman - Zoom Recording "Running a Welding Biz"
Missed Brad's WelderSkills live? Watch the recording here. Brad talks about his career history, how he started his small business, how he runs it today, and shows off some of his most important software tools.
I traveled to Alabama for a two day class with Eric to go over the new Shop Sabre Plasma and help him get his plasma prep and welding techniques dialed in. Eric is a member of WelderSkills and was kind enough to share his experience learning to weld with us.
This week we had an Aluminum freight trailer come in the shop for some repairs. In this video we'll draw the part in fusion 360, router cut the parts we designed and do the welding repairs. I have a couple of great helpers for this video as well.
