National Welding Month is about taking the time to recognize and reflect on the impact welding has on our daily life. Every day in thousands of shipyards, automotive assembly plants and construction sites, skilled welding professionals are working to build the structures and products on which the American economy depends. These professionals are behind the scenes welding the very backbone of industry and your world. The month of April is a chance to spotlight the welding industry’s past, present and future through education, mentorship and recognition.

National Welding Month is an important opportunity to highlight an industry where trade skills are in dire need. The industry is predicting a shortage of over 200,000 skilled welding professionals by 2020. By spotlighting the opportunities available in our industry we can create a better future for welding and the professionals that choose welding as a career.
