A School For Welders

Welding is a practical skill that can help you find several employment opportunities in contract work or as part of a fabrication team. It’s a career choice that can start as high as $32,220 per year* and the courses involved are typically quite short hands-on courses that will help you get familiar with the different types of welders available so that you have an easier time learning how to use them.

A welding school can be a perfect place to learn how to use a welder. Not only are lessons practical, but you can receive a certification at the end which can help you find welding-related jobs in Texas. It’s also a skill that can be added to your resume should you decide that you want to add welding to your existing repertoire of skills.

Why choose a school for welders and not a general school?

Studying at a general school in Texas can often be a long and drawn-out process because of the several mandatory subjects that we need to study. While it does give us a good foundation for studying more advanced or specific subjects, it can often feel like a waste of time especially if your focus is on finding a practical job as soon as possible or switching a career path. Even university and college courses are guilty of filling the lessons with useless information that might not be relevant to finding a job.

This is where a trade school can come in handy. Instead of learning irrelevant skills and knowledge, a trade school focuses on the subject that you want to study and the skills that you want to obtain. A welding school will teach you how to use a welder, it can educate you on the safety measures to ensure that you don’t injure yourself when using a welder, and it can tell you all about the opportunities you have in the future for employment once you’ve earned your certification.

What does a welding school teach?

Welding schools teach several different career skills that are valuable for any career that uses welding. It can teach general skills such as developing a positive work ethic, problem-solving skills and critical thinking skills which can be applied to a number of different career positions. It can also dive into welding-specific skills, such as how to use the welder, safety precautions, fusion and fabrication and how to read drawings. It also can cover basic metallurgy concepts, shop path and welding symbols that are important to understand should you want to grow a career around welding.

Courses at a welding school are short but concise, teaching you many of the skills you need in order to become an experienced welder that can become a contract worker or part of a fabrication company or team. The course duration can be as little as 7 months and upon completion, you’ll be able to take advantage of career services to help match your newly developed skills with an employer in Texas.

“When my youngest child graduated from high school, I told my husband that it was my time. I went back to school to change careers after spending 37 years in the business field. At SCI, the instructors are professional, and they care about what they are teaching you, as well as expect you to give 100% in return. I had problems understanding how to draw in syringes and give injections. I requested extra help from a knowledgeable instructor, and I was able to receive one-on-one training. Today, I draw injections for approximately 100 patients each week. I am very confident in what I’ve learned. SCI has given me the chance to do what I always wanted to do. Thank you for my education. I am doing wonderful.”
