Welding

Welding is a manufacturing occupation in which a worker permanently joins metal parts together using heat. Skilled welders are almost always in demand in the construction industry, and a properly trained welder should experience good job prospects.

Training to become a welder is found at a wide array of schools, from vocational and trade schools to community colleges or training through the military. Programs for welding can take less than a year to complete, and students can earn a certificate as a structural welder, or graduate as a master welder.

Students will learn safety practices and basic welding skills. Classes can include core welding, structural welding, and fluxcore and MIG welding. After graduating, students will be able to read blueprints and decipher layouts, perform cutting torch operations and know how to fit pipe for welding.

Safety is a constant concern for welders, and workers will wear goggles, masks and safety shoes to avoid injury. Welders have great options for employment in different industries, from manufacturing to the automobile industry to the aerospace industry.
