Hi, I am pasting in a link below with information about careers in welding, I found this by doing a google search "careers in welding" http://www.careersinwelding.com/
Most of the time a career in welding in learned by going to technical college, usually 2 years or less, or by learning on the job through an apprenticeship. I would check with the State of CA regarding apprenticeship programs in your area. Good luck!
