Welding Jobs Overview
Welders are at the heart of the construction, manufacturing, and aerospace fields. Generally, welders will spend their time cutting, combining, and shaping metal materials that will be used in these fields. Working with a blueprint, they will create the product required by their employer. In addition to creating new products or to building new structures, welders are often required to do structural repairs and repairs to machinery. The diversity of the work and the challenges it poses make welding the perfect career for those who are looking to push themselves both mentally and physically. Additional work opportunities that are available for welders include that of being a welding engineer, a welding inspector, or a welding supervisor.
Education Requirement for Welders
A high school diploma or GED certificate is required for the position, and a logical way of thinking and a basic understanding of mathematics are also traits that are invaluable in this field. It is also preferable for welders to have some construction experience though on-the-job training will be given. As a minimum requirement, they should have a general certificate in welding. This verifies that they understand basic welding techniques, safety guidelines, and blueprints needed on the job. Advanced welding certificates are also available for those who are looking to focus on particular advanced styles of welding.
Welding Job Market
The job market outlook for welders is positive. According to statistics, between the years 2012 and 2022, there is expected to be a 20 percent increase in the number of welder positions that are available, with approximately 64,100 new openings.
The annual salary for welders fluctuates depending on what field they work in. On average, welders earn approximately $34,700 a year. The bottom average annual wage is $22,900. Some welders’ salaries top out at around $52,000.
