How much do underwater welders earn?

Underwater welding is quite safe now with the advancement in technology. Welders enter decompression chambers to undo the effects of deep sea diving and nitrogen which enters the blood stream. Underwater welders do not die everyday, roughly 10 per year are killed in accidents. To actually answer your question also, underwater welders are usually private contractors hired to fix ships and can be away for long periods of time in other countries/regions, because they work for themselves they can set their own pay rates and since there is such high demand the company or customer usually doesn't have a choice but to pay what you want. But the average yearly salary for underwater welders can rage anywhere from $90,000 - $200,000 depending on area of work and how dangerous the job is.

Hourly, underwater welders' pay ranges from $15.00 per hour to $98.00 per hour depending upon the job being done.

Resume Writing

Welders

Briefly list the summary of your qualification career achievements areas of strength and personality etc?

Very strong in customer service areas, focus, goals orientated, quick learner
A lot of job applications do not even ask for that particular information. I would type up a resume' that included those things and hand it in along with their application. Example: QUALIFICATIONS Proficient in MS Office Programs including Word, Excel and Outlook Years of customer service and office experience Able to multi-task while maintaining organization and accuracy Excellent communication skills Then you can have a heading called "Career Achievements" and only list the most important ones or the ones that pertain to the position you are applying for. As for areas of strength, it is not needed because that is covered under Qualifications. The first thing on your resume' should be your name, complete address, phone number, then email address (which is optional). Then the first heading should be your OBJECTIVE: which tells the employer exactly what it is you hope to achieve. Keep it short and to the point. Then comes the QUALIFICATIONS. The ones listed above are for an office position. Then the heading EDUCATION. The only education you list here is the training you've had outside of public schools. In other words, do NOT list elementary, middle or high schools. If that is all the education you have achieved so far, then just list your high school, along with how many years attended. Example: EDUCATION 1985-1990 Diploma, Anywhere High School Then list your EMPLOYMENT dates go here name of company you worked for city, state of Co. your job title key points pertaining to that job Example: 07/2005 to present Great Office Company Lexington, KY Office Assistant Process & maintain all employee and account files Handles and enters invoices on all accounts Tracks and enters account balances Assists with Accounts Receivable, Payable and Payroll Developed & improved company forms and reports So you see you not only get to list your qualifications, but the strengths and achievements that you accomplished at each job you had. Even though you turn in a resume', most places will still have you fill out their application, but they should staple your resume to it. And believe me...IT WILL GET LOOKED AT. Hope this helps.

How do you be a good welder?

To become a good welder it is best to train at a trades type school. Then enter the workforce and upgrade again and again (depending on your regions certification availability)

DO NOT THINK you are a good welder if you can only preform one process.

You will have to move around firms to gain a broader base of welding procedures and practices. Unless your firm does everything with every process.

How much do underwater welders earn hourly?

10-55 dollars an hour
starting is around 20$ per hour for offshore, however you typically receive bonuses for depth, conservation of material, safety, and efficiency. onshore does not pay as well as offshore. 1$ per foot and an additional 1$ per foot for every 50 feet, so say, 75 feet would be 100$, 100 feet would be 150$, 150 feet would be 300$. the bonus for depth goes up as you go down and so does your risk. The deeper you go, the more nitrogen gets absorbed into your blood so for almost all offshore sub-sea welding, you are doing a saturation dive. If you do a saturation dive you are going to be in a hyperbaric chamber, both to compress before the dive and to decompress after the dive. if you are an underwater welder you work on a contract basis, not really an hourly basis.

How does a welder know what electrode he is using?

Almost all electrodes have a series of numbers to tell #1 what the tensile strength of the weld will be, #2 what electrical current to use, #3 what position/s it can be used in (ie: flat, vertical etc.) Ex. E - 7018. E = electrode, 70 = 70,000 lbs tensile strength, 1 = all positions, 18 = AC or DC reverse polarity current. (welding lead +)

How do you change a 4-wire 240V plug for a dryer to a 3-wire 240V plug for a welder and which wires do you use?

The existing 4 wires meaning Red, Black, White, Bare? Red and black are "hot" (using 120V from each phase of your service entrance), white is neutral, and bare is ground. Ground the bare or green wire to the electrical box then use red and black as your hot wires and white as neutral. You must ground the welder itself also with a jumper wire in order to be safe.

What is going rate for a welder with own rig?

I'm from Edmonton Alberta. I have operated a welding rig for 12 years and as far as I can tell there is no standard rate. I have heard of rates any where between $65 to $140/hr depending on location (how far north) and the amount of skill required. Demand at the time usually determines the rates, 2005/2006 were great years for rig welders here, 2007 not so good. In Edmonton now, rates seem to be around 85 for "B" welders and 70 for journeyman. PROARC Nov. 18

I agree, here in Michigan I've seen many rates, the highest was for tig welding Stainless steel/aluminum That was $15 per inch, but tig is always a little more expensive.

As far as I am aware. The gauges themselves are the same. Usually brass. Unless someone has painted them. The hoses on the other hand are red and green. The red being for the acetylene. A lot of times the tanks will be painted the same way although I have seen some acetylene tanks painted black.
