How To Get Into The Welding Trade




Did you know we're facing a massive challenge? We're on a mission to recruit 360,000 new welders by 2027.

โš ๏ธ Brace yourself! Over 155,000 seasoned welders are on the verge of retirement.

The torch is passing, and we need the next generation to rise to the occasion.
