A certified Welder has the knowledge, ability and skills required to layout, cut, prepare, repair, install and join metals of various compositions using a variety of welding equipment. Welders make and fix metal equipment and items crucial to everyday business operations. Since the range of industrial items made of metal is extensive, Welders must not only be versatile but also highly skilled.

If you enjoy creating things with your hands, are practical and results-oriented and have an interest in working with metal, you may want to become a welder. Whether you work in a small metal fabricating shop or in a large industrial complex, the job has lots of variety. In fact, being versatile is important since welders make or repair a wide range of items.

Apprenticeship Manitoba applications are available at www.manitoba.ca/tradecareers

For the majority of trades, it is required that applicants have a high school diploma or equivalent academic standing. Because apprenticeship trades involve technical components, it is important to have high school credits in English, math and science. Those with mature student status, over 19 years of age regardless of completed grade level, may be required to participate in an assessment process. Graduates from a college pre-employment program, Senior Years Apprenticeship Option or an accredited high school vocational program may qualify for time and/or level credits in an apprenticeship program.

If you don’t meet these admission requirements please visit our adult learning page for more information on the assessment of special circumstances.
