Is welding school right for you?
The best career for you would involve hands-on, physical work. You’d rather do a job that involves some heavy lifting than get stuck sitting in one place every day.
You want to learn skills that will give you the flexibility to work in a variety of industries throughout your career – including construction, car racing, aerospace or manufacturing.
Working in a variety of environments sounds good to you. You’ll go where the work is – whether it’s indoors or outdoors, on scaffolding or in small spaces, you get the job done.
Does this sound like you? If so, a welding trade school could be the path to a successful and rewarding career.
