Becoming a Welding instructor

Postby Vulpine welder » Tue Jul 11, 2017 8:14 pm

Hello Everybody,

So like the headliner says I'm thinking of becoming a welding instructor, however I have no idea how to even get started. I am currently welding now and have had some school but I'm not sure what steps I should be taking to further my education in this area. Any advice would be great, I'm not looking to become one over night, but would like to possibly do it as I get older and it gets harder to move around. Thanks!

I think it varies a lot depending on what level your looking to teach at.
I have more questions than answers

I know all my instructors at my tech school are CWIs and CWEs. And I wish you the best of luck with those storms rolling through your area. I am near Fergus falls this summer on my uncles farm so I am sitting here watching the storm roll through.
A student now but really want to weld everyday. Want to learn everything about everything. Want to become a knower of all and master of none.
