Welcome to the Welding Lab!

According to the American Welding Society, the welding shortage will reach a deficit of 400,000 workers by 2024. Older welders are reaching retirement age, and younger welders aren’t replacing them fast enough. In fact, the average age of a welder is 55, and fewer than 20 percent are under the age of 35.

Challenge: Your mission is to work through the different welding lessons with the welding simulator.
