Of all the trades and artisanal and artistic works out there, the welding profession remains one of the most highly skilled of them all. Perhaps you are one of those. You have a highly developed technical mind. But you are also quite creative. And nothing would please you more than being able to combine these aptitudes under the umbrella of a single trade or profession. You could do that if you train to become a full-fledged welder. Do make a note that if you go the right route, you are likely to be in training for at least half a dozen years.
During your formative years, perhaps within the first year or two, long before you are even allowed to slip a protective mask and pair of gloves on, you will be given a general but very theoretical introduction to all the welding machines in operation out there. And of course, you should be given full introductions to the specialist industries to which each and every welding task is attached. Plasma and plastic welding are two such highly specialized welding trades to become involved in. But long before you get that far, you will still be required to master the basics.
Basic welding practical work will need to be done before you can elevate yourself into an area that has attracted your notice. And as each year passes, and each set of trade tests are passed, high marks and all, you will be accordingly accredited. By the time you are finally and officially qualified to practice independently as a specialist welder, you will be keeping very good company indeed. You are good news for all the discerning commercial, industrial and domestic, as well as public customers out there, they knowing that you have the qualifying papers that confirm your ability to serve them.
