Currently I am welding for a Military Contractor. We do repair and retrofit on LAVs and fabricate new parts for LAVs. The processes are very precise and there is lots of training involved. I did 6 weeks of training with MIG when I started this job.

My apprenticeship consisted of 2.5 years in a rinky dink fab shop, and a year and a half working various Boilermaker Union jobs. I have my CWB (Canadian Welding Bureau) Cert. for structural and my B-Pressure ticket for pipe. I'm looking at getting into inspection later this year.
