The core function of this discipline is to join metallic materials with the aid of different melting processes.

The daily duties of a welding apprentice could include:

  • Working according to work instructions, drawings, and WPS (welding procedure specifications)
  • Handling materials, consumables, and tools used to work with materials
  • Carrying out welding processes according to the indicated method
  • Maintenance and troubleshooting of welding equipment

What kind of person are we looking for?

A welder must be able to work very precisely, according to plan, rationally and efficiently, both independently and in collaboration with others. You should have good dexterity and relevant discipline knowledge.
