Welding Skills Remain in Demand

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that welders, especially those “trained in the latest technologies” should have “good” job prospects over the next few years. In fact, the BLS continues, “welding schools report that graduates have little difficulty finding work, and many welding employers report difficulty finding properly skilled welders.”

It should be noted, the BLS continued, that the range of wages of welders reflects the wide range of skill levels in the occupation. With our training, you can help supercharge this skillset.

The Better the Welding Training, the More You’ll Earn

What does a welding school mean for you? In a nutshell, the more formal welding instruction you have, the more precise training and certification you can present to an employer, the more you’ll be in demand and the more you’ll be paid.
North American Trade School’s Combination Welding Technology program will train you in some of the following, highly sought after welding skills:

  • Stick Welding – Named for a specially prepared welding rod that conducts an electrical current, welding education in this process will give you the skill you need to carry out sophisticated maintenance and repair work as it’s needed.
  • TIG Welding – This process uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode in order to produce the weld and can be applied to a wider range of materials.
  • Arc Welding – This method requires use of a welding power supply and the products that are produced through arc welding are generally used in other aspects of manufacturing.
  • MIG Welding – The most widespread type of welding used and one of the easiest for students to learn. It can often be learned in several hours and serve as a basis for learning other processes.
  • Pipe Welding – This welding process is especially valuable in the plumbing industry, as it will teach you the proper way to fuse pipes together.
