Level 3 Apprenticeship Welder
Skilled, qualified, professionally certified Multi-Positional Welders can work anywhere in the world and provide services in the harshest of environments. For these accomplished professionals, the monetary rewards can be significant.
There is a highly complex range of welding skills: the different arc welding processes require different levels of manual dexterity, knowledge and skill to avoid making defective welds. There are a wide range of metallic materials that can be welded all with different properties and behaviours.
Welding is a way to make high strength joints between two or more parts. Multi-Positional Welders use high electrical energy to form an arc. Manual dexterity is essential in controlling the arc, which is used to melt metals, allowing them to fuse together to form a structurally sound weld.
Welding is used extensively and in almost every sector of industry. There is a high demand for Multi-Positional Welders in areas such as: power generation, oil and gas, marine, transport, nuclear, processing, aerospace, pharmaceuticals, construction and many more. Multi-Positional Welders make items such as: pressure containment equipment, pressure pipework, offshore jackets, submarines, military vehicles and equipment and aero engine components. Multi-Positional Welders are able to work with a range of welding processes, with different metals, to the levels of quality and inspection required in safety critical applications. The finished welds are often subjected to rigorous inspection and testing. Multi-Positional Welders are therefore required to consistently perform to high standards in order to ensure that the finished products function correctly, contributing to the safety of all and the global quality of life.
