Some welders start with an apprenticeship instead of formal training. This is an option, but you may need more essential skills when the time comes to complete tasks on the job. Plus, starting an apprenticeship may pigeonhole you into a specialty or single discipline within the vast array of welding techniques. Learning a complete curriculum will give you options when working as a licensed welding professional.

Hands-On Training

A great benefit of formal training is your hands-on experience in real-world scenarios. You can make mistakes and learn from them using virtual reality before any catastrophic events happen. Learn welding in a safe environment under the mentorship of industry-experienced instructors.
