Welding Career Information
“To become a professional welder, you must first either graduate high school or obtain your GED. After that, the requirements may vary by employer. Some will offer apprenticeships and training programs. However, most employers suggest, at the very minimum, a trade school diploma in welding. If you’re still in high school and considering going into the trade of welding, it is strongly suggested that you take all the shop classes your high school offers, along with loading up in math and science classes. And, consider finding a job opportunity at an auto body shop or anywhere you can learn about welding through a professional.
Trade or vocational schools offer diplomas in welding and community colleges offer associate’s degrees in welding technology. Through both types of courses, you will take physics, chemistry, blueprint reading, metallurgy, mechanical drawing, and shop math. You’ll also learn the essential art of heating and shape various metals, which welding is based upon. There will also be plenty of hands-on opportunities which will not only teach but give you the necessary exposure to experience, as well.” – Become A Welder: Facts About Welding Careers
