what welding jobs entail
You need to enjoy your work, because you often work in noisy, dusty environments where temperatures and climates vary greatly. If you work in the construction sector, seasonal weather is also an issue. Often, you’re working in an uncomfortable position in close quarters. Becoming a welder is certainly not a career for the faint-of-heart!
You may be a machine operator who’s classed as a welder if you operate production welding, brazing, and soldering equipment that has already been set up.
As a welder, you can also specialize in a variety of areas such as custom fabrication, pipeline construction welding, aerospace precision welding, pressure structural construction welding, ship building and repair, vessel welding, or machinery and equipment repair welding.
