Prerna’s Answer

Hello Jeffrey,

Some days, welders work on one large project. Other days, they move to different areas or locations to complete work for clients. The first phase of work is to review the blueprints or directions from the employer or client. The welder then gathers all tools and materials necessary to complete the work. A torch or soldering device is then used to weld metal together based on the dimensions prescribed in the blueprint. After each project, the welder cleans up the work space and cleans and maintains his tools.

Hope this helps!

John’s Answer

I was certified as a US Navy Nuclear Emergency Welder and Welding Supervisor onboard Navy Submarines. I have welded a ship's whistle while underway trying to enter a harbor in the fog when the Officer on Deck broke off four support brackets. I have welded in pipe hangers and locker foundations on floating dry-dock, submarine tender.

Over my career I have checked the work of welders by performing NDT testing of welds.

Becoming certified was trouble for me as I "choose to goof-off more than pay attention.
