First of all, it is important to realize that you will only get from welding school what you are willing to put forth. Basically, don�t expect amazing results without the effort it takes to attain them. If you would have asked me ten years ago what career I would choose for myself, I wouldn�t have said welding. Looking back over the past years though, I have to admit it�s been a great experience.
Over the years I�ve worked my way up. I started out as a heavy wall welder in a soybean refinery. I moved on to working in shipyards, ethanol plants, pharmaceutical plats and gas turbine plants. I�ve spent the last four years jumping from one nuclear power plant to the next. I�ve spent time repairing reactor heads, and have achieved top secret clearance with the government which has enabled me to work on US nuclear submarines. Currently, I am a general foreman for one of the largest nuclear contractors\ at the largest nuclear power plant in the United States, Palo Verde.
All of this would have never been possible without MWI, and the constant nagging from good ole �JIMBO�. Keep the hood down and your head on straight.
