Apprenticeship Welder

Lethbridge College

Lethbridge College

www.lethbridgecollege.ca
Lethbridge College offers the Welding program to indentured apprentices. Turn up the heat on your future and get involved with an apprenticeship that can allow you to build a solid career. Welders are in demand in a variety of capacities. Welders join or sever metals in beams, girders, vessels, piping and other metal components. You could also be involved in making metal parts used in construction and manufacturing plants, or welding parts, tools, machines and equipment. Welding usually involves applying heat to metal pieces to melt and fuse them together. How you will actually do this will depend on the project and such things as the type of metal, its size and shape, and requirements for finished product strength. Welders use different processes and fillers depending upon the type of metal, its size and shape, and requirements for finished product strength. For a typical welding project, they:  develop patterns for projects or follow directions given in layouts, blueprints and/or work orders  clean, check for defects and shape component parts, sometimes using a cutting torch  weld parts together Welders may also build up worn parts by welding layers of high-strength hard-metal alloys onto them. You'll find the work rewarding if you enjoy building things and working with little direction or supervision. To be successful in the trade, welders need manual dexterity, good vision (glasses are acceptable), eye-hand coordination, the ability to concentrate on detailed work, and patience. You should also expect to work in a variety of environments from outdoor construction sites to indoor jobs in production and repair shops. As a welder, your career can take you to a variety of industries including vessel or structural steel assembly, steel fabrication, heavy equipment repair, pipeline construction, and commercial and industrial construction.
