A career as a welder can take you where you want to go.

You can put your skills to work in industries ranging from custom automobile and airplane manufacturing to ship building and commercial construction.  With a strong set of welding skills, you can choose your industry and workplace – small town repair shop, big city construction site, or underwater drilling operation.
