What is a Welder?

What is a Welder?

This guide, created by Weld-Ed: The National Center for Welding Education and Training, provides information on a career as a welder. The resource gives information on the job's typical responsibilities. Information on the education requirements, recommended areas of knowledge and salary/ wage data for the profession are also provided. All of these statistics are based on information provided by the "Bureau of Labor Statistics, Occupational Employment Statistics Survey." While this is fairly simple in design, the handout could prove quite useful for instructors and career centers looking to open doors for their students. The resource is available in a .doc format.
