Welder Technician FAQs

WHAT SKILLS DO WELDER TECHNICIANS NEED?

Welder technicians use a variety of welding techniques, including arc, soldering, plasma cutting, and oxyfuel cutting processes. They use math to determine tolerances, read blueprints, and configure physical designs from engineering concepts. They must be familiar with the properties of metals, including both ferrous metals like steel and iron and non-ferrous metals like aluminum, copper, lead, nickel, tin, titanium, and zinc. Welder technicians work with powerful equipment, so safety procedures and practices are very important. Finally, welder technicians often work in teams on loud, sometimes dangerous jobs. Therefore, listening and collaboration skills are crucial.
