Typically a stick welder that doesn't require the use of any Gasses (obviously). The "stick" is really a fuse that generates a charge when scraped/touched to another metal, and the spark is so hot, it melts the fuse and the metal together into a weld.

An underwater welder starts off in the mid 40s. You should research this on any website and scan salary given in ads. You may want to call a center by using 411. This could direct you to an actual center.

Most likely just a High School Education or a GED (maybe not even that). You also need to go to a trade school that specializes in Underwater Welding. Also, it is a very dangerous job.

No but there is a limit to how much time you can spend underwater, typically the deeper you are the less time you can be under. Also there are limits to how many dives a week you can make. And also there is a waiting period to be able to fly or go above a certain altitude after being undersea.

No , although Co2 may be used , along with other gasses , a welder using this process is not considered a Co2 welder . TIG stands for tungsten Inert Gas , so the welder is considered / called a TIG Welder.
