Pipeline welding is incredibly complex and a key aspect to many forms of heavy construction and manufacturing. Skilled welders are in demand for companies that require pipe welding jobs due to the large amount of details, certifications and job specifics required of pipe welding at any given point in time.
The general functions of a pipeline welder go beyond welding pipes. Pipeline welders need to be able to weld in work sites that may have significant obstructions, in accordance with different job specifications, and often in odd positions for the body, as the pipe is often too heavy or large to be moved during the project.
They have to comply with project specifications, equipment, and materials while also following both the employer’s regulations and standard safety protocol. This is especially important given that the contents of the pipe may be under high pressure, flammable or caustic, so they could hurt the welders themselves or the people around them. They are required to have certifications for not only a variety of materials, but also welding equipment and job types.
Since pipeline welders have to go through so many certifications, there are certain jobs that you will be certified to do and others that you will not. Due to the amount of heavy manufacturing occurring on a global scale, the energy, process, and infrastructure industries, are always looking for talented pipeline welders with a variety of different certifications.
