Hi guys new here, completed a 4 year apprenticeship about 2 years ago gained a level 3 NVQ advanced diploma in welding and fabrication, so have 6 years experience. Feel like I have gained lots of skills and confidence in this time, but also now how much more I could learn. I want to take the next step in my career and gain a more skilled job in the industry then I currently have, in my aprentiship I learnt mig on mild steel all joint types in all positions and tig on mild steel and stainless all joint types in all positions (lots of other thing where learnt I.e material maths and science advanced fab etc but this was the welding I did) In my current job role though I only do mig welding, so my first step I’ve decided i’m going to buy a tig welder to re-learn and better my skills, Every job I think is a chance to move up in my career always requires experience in that field or never get back to me. I’m wondering how to get a foot in the door, is getting coded going to help me?? Really want to go to the next level and gain a more advanced challenging job but need advise on how to do that, so what do you think guys any advise??
