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.

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.

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.
