Welding Systems

Does a welding job pay good money. Basically… Welding Jobs *can* pay very well depending on what part of the country you are doing it in. . AND what type AND your level of expertice we hear stories of guys that worked the Alaska Pipeline and came back bought a house and retired on the income from investing that money. . Right now in Canada (the really cold part of canada) there is a huge boom in the Oil industry. . $125K/yr for simple laborers. . I'magine what they are paying skilled welders. . Community Colleges are a great place to get certified and to then move into good welding gigs (they usually have job boards). . Any types of welding *can* be dangerous and over time can take thier toll on you physically. . Avoid the scam of *underwater welding schools* they are expensive and there are not really that much of a need for underwater welder's (The welder's out there that do it, are the ones that get named for the job. . There are many, many certifed uderwater welder's that act as helpers. . The ones that monitor the guy underwater that is doing the welding. . They don't get paid as well as the guy underwater. . You pay your dues for a long time in that field) Another option is to get your own truck mounted rig and do field work and repairs. . Out here (Los Angeles) they can charge $150/hr. . Minimum of two hours. . A friend of mine has two rigs. . And he pays his second rig guy $75/hr

    If you are certified it will pay gorgeous well. It is one of the better paying trades. No certification or experience is bad news for you. Get certified at a community college.
