Welding

Welding & Fabrication is one of the few career choices that is in high demand at all times. Since welders are needed in almost every industry, it gives them the flexibility to switch industries without changing careers. Let’s face the facts; most career choices have ups and downs.

Welding on the other hand has endless opportunities that keep fueling the demand. Welding is a career that offers more choices of industries to work in and advancement opportunities than just about any other career choice. Welders are needed in almost every industry and those who want to advance their career have the ability to do so with additional training.

A few examples of the fields in which Welders can find career opportunities: Inspection, Engineering, Robotics Education, Project Management and Sales.
