Learning Welding Skills

As a welder, your exact career duties can vary depending on the industry in which you're employed. Most employers require you to be familiar with arc welding. This technique bonds metals together with heat by using electrical currents. In some cases, you might oversee machines capable of automated welding. In these scenarios, you'll program the machines and ensure that they're performing the welding tasks correctly.
