Welding Vocational Schools

Welding trade schools offer career training and diploma programs that not only teach you to weld, they can prepare you for a wide range of jobs in the manufacturing, repair, and service industries. You'll learn the fundamental processes, techniques, and safety practices necessary for all welders. Learn about a range of techniques in plate and sheet metal, pipe welding, gas, tungsten, metal, and plasma arc welding.

Welding trade schools can provide hands-on instruction and experience leading to certification in codes and processes, leading to jobs including:

  • Welders. Learn many of the more than eighty different processes used in contemporary welding in metal product manufacturing, machinery production and repair, architectural and construction industries, robotic welding, inspections, and shop protocol.
  • Soldering and Braising Professionals. Learn processes in electronic or small metal joinery used in processes. Welding schools offer classes in standards and specifications, coatings, and working with blueprints.
  • Sheet Metal Workers. Two thirds of sheet metal workers are hired by the construction industry. Use your welding school training and job experience to seek apprenticeships or additional trade school preparation in HVAV welding, installation, fabrication, and more.

Putting Your Welding Trade School Training to Work
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, two thirds of all welders find jobs in the manufacturing sector. Welding jobs can be demanding, often requiring overtime, which increases earnings. Some positions are in factories that remain open twenty-four hours a day. Many welders start their own business.

Depending on the school, you can pursue courses leading to certification by the American Welding Society. With experience and additional training, welders can advance to shop supervisor positions or jobs as instructors and inspectors. Welders earned a median annual wage of $33,560 in 2008.
