The Fab School: Training Tomorrow's Welders Today
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, there were 337,000 jobs for welders, cutters, solderers and brass workers in 2010. By 2020, that number is expected to increase by 15 percent. Every day, skilled trade workers are retiring, creating an unmet demand for a new skilled workforce. With many skilled welders retiring at twice the pace of new welders coming into the field, it's anticipated that in the years to come, we'll have a significant shortfall of qualified welders.
