Question? Pipeliner - Welding School vs Starting as a Welder Helper?


New member
What would you advice someone wanting to break out in the pipeline welding world?
I believe that the best welders have a combination of a technical education, as well as on the on the job experience. A degree or certification will open more doors in the oilfield welding field. The on the job experience will help you for things that a welding school just can't teach, such as dealing with bad fit up and all round working habits.
