Hello Max,
I would definitely suggest seeking out help from someone who works on this trade. I would also suggest looking into trade schools that offer this program as typically there is a hands on aspect in regards to partnering with those in the field while you are completing the requirements for the courses involved.

Is there a vocational school near you? Find the welding instructor, ask them. Many instructors would be happy to meet with you and discuss the ins and outs of the trade. They will know the industry, who is hiring and who is the best to work for. I just spent the afternoon at an adult vocational school and made several contacts in the HVAC and welding industry. (While it is not my current career path, Im looking to get better at welding and the vocational school had great advice for me)

Hi, Max! You CLEARLY have a career objective/passion...which is awesome. Full disclosure - I work in financial aid...so take this with a grain of salt. The best advice I can offer is for you to seek out someone in the trade...who does the job daily...that would be the best person who could guide you. I am shamefully ignorant, but honest. I worked "crew" in the theater back in the day and had to do an apprenticeship to get guild pay...I'm guessing that might be a similar path?

You got this...
Thank you comment icon I believe in doing what you love ,so if you like welding then my advice to you is take the bull by its horns and become an all rounder then you can choose Nyasha Dzivai
