It seems every time I look at at headline that has “welding” in the title it’s about a welding school expanding their offerings–the predicted shortage of welders is here.
There are a lot of welding school options, from your local community college where the courses may be more affordable, to the more specialized training schools like Wyotech, Lincoln Electric’s Welding School, or Tulsa Welding School where you can learn pipe welding, automotive technology, shipfitting and sheet metal fabrication. (Check out the American Welding Society’s Welding School Locator to find a program near you.)
Once you’ve made the decision to go to school you’ll need to have some of your own gear. Most welding schools will most likely give you list of welding supplies, starting with welding safety.
Start with Welding Safety
Next, add the Welding Safety Cool Factor
In fact, we thought this was such a great idea, we’re offering welding safety starter kits, coming soon!
