How to make money as a welder and market your skill

Are you interested in becoming a full time welder?  Do you want to quit your day job and do something you love?  I have always been interested in welding as a career and I am writing this post to help anyone else interested in welding as a career find more helpful information. I am actually promoting three resources I purchased, used, and reviewed with my mechanic buddies who weld.  There is a mix of information here, but all of it is hugely important to know if you want to start a career as a welder.  I even went so far as to get into registering for classes at the local college, but these books covered the same information I was going to have spend at least $600 to learn.   I have written a little more about what brought me to these books, and included the links at the bottom of the page for your review as well.

I have a full-time, white collar job, but on the weekends, I love to work with my hands and work on cars and bikes.   Over time, my interest in welding has become a necessary skill that I need in order to do my projects and fabricate stuff I have in my head.  I did not really know where to start, so I went down to my mechanic buddy and he started introducing me to welding and using his equipment to practice.  I know that not everyone has this luxury, so I took advantage of it to learn how to get better and improve my technique.

After a while I started to research more about welding online.  I bought a few good books from the local book store, but they all had pretty much the same content, and it all seemed to be aimed at hobby welding.  I wanted to really learn how to do quality industrial type welds using good equipment and getting good enough to build motorcycle and car frames.  I also was interested how I could weld for profit and actually start making money doing it.  Becoming a welder profressionally requires that you get certified.  To get certified, you need to practice and learn about welding, then have a certified inspector check out your work.  This means going to school, or working at a local shop and learning on the job – then getting certified.

If you are like me and want to learn on your own time, practice while you learn, but also get serious about getting your welding certification, then check out these three resources below.  To be perfectly honest, they are great bits of information from guys who are certified welders.  Some of the information is over-kill, and can get boring, but all of it is relevant to the trade of welding!

Here are the links for your review:

1) This is called the 100k welder.  It shows you how to seriously start a career as a pipe welder.  All of the information in here is very legit – right to the point, and given from a perspective of a certified welding instructor and inspector.  Lots of useful info here and I highly recommend this:

2)  This is another useful packet of information that really dives into the technical and “school” type information about welding, metal, types of welding equipment, and other tips and tricks.  This is good to have as well in your inventory so that you know the materials you are working with when welding.  Believe me – this is very important to know as well!

3) This is a link I found for Welding Secrets.  Pretty cool quick and easy tips and tricks.
