Just wonder who on board runs beads for a buck.
For the past while i've been seriously considering goin and getting my "C"level and "welder/fitter".
I've always seen welding as useful, something that is likely to be a steady trade for some time to come, and obviously is a trade that you can take with you where ever you go.
So i have a few questions for those of you in the know.....
1- Is there much of an employment rate for a welders in B.C.? (i'm currently at a job in a mill that pays 22 and change an hour...but it's mind numbing with no transferable skills to other employment, so i don't want to give up the cash if i'm not half certain i'd have work awaiting the doors to the employment field)
2- Can a person who gets their "C" level expect to find work with any ease, before having to lay out the time to jump to "B' and "A" levels?
3- Of those of you who are in this trade, can you offer some pros and cons of welding for me?
4- Are you interprov. recognized as a welder when you get any cert. in b.c.?
5- is a beginner welder's pay enough to live off?
that about all i can think of for now.
