Becoming a welder may be a good career path for you, but what makes welding different from other trades? We’ve listed five reasons why welding can be a good career choice.
There is a demand for welders
The world needs welders, plain and simple. While some people may lose their jobs if the economy crashes, welding is still an essential job. The world’s aging infrastructure will require the expertise of welders, cutters, solderers and brazers to help rebuild bridges, highways and buildings.
You can begin a career quicker
CCNN offers a Welding and Fabrication program that can be completed in as few as 12-months. Whether you’re fresh out of high school or you’re ready to start a new career path, CCNN’s welding program will teach you what you need to know to enter this lucrative and rewarding industry. General education courses are also included to support the training program and develop computer, mathematics and science skills used in the industry.
It can pay well
Just like any career path or industry, the longer and harder you work at it, your potential to make more money increases. ZipRecruiter states that the majority of welder salaries in Nevada currently range between $31,162 to $40,561. While welding is no “get rich quick” scheme, sticking with it and working hard is always beneficial.
You can travel
One of the best things about becoming a welder is the freedom to travel. Welders are needed everywhere. Do you live in Nevada but want to move to Florida or California? You can. While some states may have a higher demand for welders, every state needs them. Maybe you are looking for a stable career near home, that’s great too. Companies everywhere are looking for qualified welders.
Diversity and variety within the industry is one of the reasons becoming a welder is so desirable. With all the different metals and welding processes, the projects are endless. Although the art of welding is the same, the work and environment can change drastically, if you want it to.
