As a sophomore at Century High School, I enrolled in a welding program at the University. before the class started I thought it was going be very easy. However, I soon realized it was not going to be easy at all. In fact, the welding program was quite hard. Nonetheless, the instructors were supportive and patient with me. Which in my opinion say a lot about the welding program in general. Through the year, the welding program became easier and more enjoyable. With the semester ending, I had to decide if I wanted to continue the welding program the following year. I made the decision to continue the welding program. Now, I am a senior, and I have attended the welding class for three years. I have learned invaluable skills and enjoyed the welding program. Even though I have finished the requirements at Century High School. I have decided to continue my education in welding at ISU the subsequent year. I am looking forward and excited about being a student at ISU. Career Description
One day, in the life of a pipeline welder, first, the day begins when you wake up at 6:00am. Conditioning yourself to be an early riser is imperative to your success in the welding industry. Then you proceed to your rig truck. Included in your rig truck there is every imaginable tool aboard that you need to complete your job. Every boy and man alike could appreciate the tools of the welding trade. Next, you travel out to the middle of no man’s land. This is not a bad thing. However, it is more common than not, for welders in the construction industry. Finally, upon your arrival the job supervisor will inform, present, and clarify, the daily task required for the day. Most likely as the newbie, rookie welder, or whatever term the crew dubs you as, your task for the day is prepping essential pieces and small welding tasks.
