There is a guy at scouts who is a part owner in a industrial crane business. I overheard that he was looking for certified welders (heard 1 inch overhead) dont know the level. A strong electrician type background would be helpful.

No attachment or anything to the company. The main owner did haul all of our scout troop to the start of our 107 mi canoe trip and picked us up so IMHO, he's OK.
It's boring, and your lack of creativity knows no bounds.

    A guy with those skills can write his own ticket in the pipeline business. And with the right experience he won't even have to weld. he can be a supervisor.

    Skilled trades are very under rated. These poor kids have been brainwashed to believe that if you do good in high school, you can get in a good college. If you get in a good college, you can get a good job.

    The reality is that if you do good in high school, you can get in a good college. That good college will put you $100,000 in debt. That good college degree will get you a job as an unpaid intern, or a barista.

    A kid that is competent in an honest to goodness trade fresh out of high school or enters a trade fresh out of high school will start making money from day 1. If they are good at their skill, they will make a good living and their skills will be in demand.

    A good welder or anyone that's skilled, and has a good work ethic should never have trouble finding a job.

    I have a Sheep Skin on my wall, says "Bachelors of Legal Studies!" I can take that diploma and add a buck fifty and get me a cup of coffee anywhere within the state or nation. Back when I was in High School it was preached to us continually to get that degree and you would have it made. I ended up getting a vocational degree in Diesel Engines from a school that has both academics and vojack campuses. I made about as much money with that 2 year degree as anybody else who got their bachelors back then. I know have a bachelors that costs me a bunch of money I will have to pay back and I haven't made a red cent with that degree yet. But part of the reason is that when you're 66 years old and they hear you comin, they're out the door before you can slip in , and they run for the nearest swamp!

    They always told me to get that degree because that was something they could never take away from you. But then again these days I don't know who would want it. :jester:

    This. If I didn't have the Army thing going on, I would have stopped college after my AA and pursued a trade.

    An idea to find a qualified and certified welder: This company is invited to contact their local ironworkers hall.

    I can assure you; my union brothers and sisters are a good choice for getting the job done right and in an efficient and timely manner.

    You would need AWS d1.1 cert In all 4 positioning for that job. This cert has an easier test then say the cert for bridge welding.

    What part of the apprenticeship training includes walking a picket line and getting laid off for low seniority?
