Underwater welding is a high paying, much in demand, lucrative and rewarding profession. Underwater welding also takes a combination of skills. If you are wondering how to get started in this great career, the American Welding Society makes recommendations at their web site to encourage young people to enter the career field of underwater welding.

To get a basic idea of just what it takes, here are a few skills you should have. First you must be both a certified welder and a commercial diver. It is essential to have good diving skills and equally essential to place a premium on safety. Most of the tasks involved in the job of an underwater welder are not the welding itself, but the things that need to be done to get ready for the job.

Those interested in becoming underwater welders can attend one of the many fine commercial diving schools. Most of them offer a certificate of completion and acceptance as a commercial diver upon completion. You will also need to pass a diving physical exam, and often times a written exam as well. The Association of Commercial Diving Education provides a list of certified diving schools by writing the Association of Diving Contractors –ADC-, 2611 FM 1960 W., Suite F204, and Houston, Texas 77068. Call them at (713) 893-8388 or fax them (713) 893-5118. After completing the course a person should have a good idea as to whether or not they are comfortable under the water and want to continue in the field of underwater welding. If you are comfortable and want to continue, then many professional diving companies offer the service of under water welding. Get your resume together and apply.

Upon getting that first underwater welding job, most companies will require you to enhance your skills by passing certain qualification tests. Consult your company as to the requirements they have. Generally the better your wet and dry welding skills, the more valuable you are and the higher rating and pay grade you will have.

Some people are already commercial divers when they become interested, which then requires welding training. It is also wise to be in peak physical condition since underwater welding can be physically demanding. The better shape you are in, the better you’ll do.

What the chances are of finding work in underwater welding is a question that also comes to mind for most people. The need for skilled workers in underwater welding is usually very good, though it is subject to the laws of supply and demand as most professions are. As you gain experience the more job opportunities will become available to you, and as your reputation in underwater welding grows, the more sought after you will be. Salaries in excess of $100,000 per year are commanded by skilled and experienced technicians in underwater welding, making it a career field worth looking into for anyone with an interest in combining the two sought after skills of professional welding, and diving.
