    Are there any pipeline welding jobs out there that are not x-ray and if so how would I go about getting those jobs?

    Not in this day and age. With pipeline failures of recent years PHMSA and DOT are only going to get stricter on operators. Many pipelines don't require 100% x-ray, but are usually at least 10%. Besides, why fear the x-ray? It's easier to pass an x-ray than a destructive test used to qualify!
