With some advanced training, I recommend you work in the welding industry to gain some practical work experience. While you're working in the welding profession, you can take advantage of ongoing skills training and certificates- and your job will pay for the continuing education be a use you work there. You can then decide if you feel you want to continue your education. Meanwhile, you'll be a skilled welder making a good living wage that can afford to go back to school.

Experience will always trump education when it comes to your resume. You'll be able to take classes part-time if you're concerned about getting a degree at some point. Consider knocking out classes at community college and pursuing an associate's degree. A degree's purpose is essentially to get a job, so if you are already on the career path you want, you should stick with getting a job as soon as possible if you already can get one.
