Jeffrey’s Answer

Welding is very satisfying and creative work. Over my career I have fabricated everything from woodstoves to freight trains to buildings and bridges to Trident nuclear submarines. As a bonus, you will save money on a gym membership.

Jeffrey recommends the following next steps:

Find a local welding school that offers a 12 week course. That will teach you most everything you need to know, and not load you up with debt like a community college program.

Dirk "Dutch"’s Answer

Can vary a lot depending on what you do. A shop welders day is very different than a pipeline welders for instance. Typically people work with a fitter or fabricator to get parts ready then weld them together.

It is hard work. Too hot. Too cold is your weather. Hard on the back. Requires stamina. A lot of lifting , climbing, etc. In the long run it will pay off though
