OUR LINK TO THE WORLD
Welders use hand-welding or flame-cutting equipment to join metal parts or to fill holes and seams of metal products. You’ll need to be able to read technical drawings and set up various components and parts accordingly, then weld them using a torch. Other tools will also be used and will vary depending on the project and materials.
What to expect
Are you skilled with your hands and calm under pressure? Interested in making things for a living? As a welder you will be able to do all of this in an exciting environment. It will require a steady hand, lots of physical strength, and an eye for quality and detail. You might work with a partner or in a team, which will require excellent communication skills and a concern for others.
