Overview

Welding is an area of employment that deals with the merging of metal through the use of heat as generated by various machines. Individuals in this field must maintain safety standards, and understand the properties of the metal they are use, as well as be proficient in the use of various welding tools in order to complete projects.

Education and Schools

An education in welding typically results in a certificate or associate degree, with certificates being most common. Welding is a technical skill, though it is complex in its application, and requires a large amount of safety education prior to starting welding itself. Upon completion the safety portion of the education, students will learn about the various types of welding, how and when they are used, which tools to use and how in order to achieve desired results, and the effectiveness of welding on different metals.

A curriculum may include:

  • Safety
  • Gases and Heat
  • Metals and Welding
  • Welding Tools
  • Welding Techniques

Most students will be able to find school that offer welding programs locally, either through career colleges or community colleges. Community colleges tend to offer associate level programs, which add general education courses to a welding curriculum, providing additional education opportunities, and can be a determining factor for personal preference. Additionally newer tools and welders are generally safer and more desired, and schools should invest in regularly maintaining and updating them.

Employment Opportunities

Welders should experience normal growth over the next decade, due mostly in part to the to the need for such professional in the manufacturing industry. Welders in particular have a good amount of demand in the workplace, and can easily transition from one industry to another because the skills and techniques involved in welding do not change between industries. Welding provides solid work that is not easily replaceable.
