I am aware of the supreme value of trade apprenticeship programs and the simple fact that Free-Ed.Net cannot provide that. However, there is always room for apprentices (and proven professionals) to review and expand their understanding of current welding methods, tools, and regulations. That's where Free-Ed.Net can be a continuous, lifelong resource for you.



Underwater welding and cutting is one of the ten most dangerous jobs today.


Welding is the most common way of permanently joining metal parts. In this process, heat is applied to metal pieces, melting and fusing them to form a permanent bond. Because of its strength, welding is used in shipbuilding, automobile manufacturing and repair, aerospace applications, and thousands of other manufacturing activities. Welding also is used for joining steel beams in the construction of buildings, bridges, and other structures and to join pipes in pipelines, powerplants, and refineries.
