I learned to weld courtesy of the US Air Force (Metals Processing Specialist - included welding, heat treating, electroplating, and non destructive testing). I am certain all the services include the welding trade in some classification.

But does welding have the same student loan debt?

On average no, absolutely not.

That being said I had and have no debt. It is possible if you make the right decisions and keep your eye on the ball (learning) rather than the "experience" (parties, social scene, sports events, blah blah).

My dad is a mechanical engineer....and a welder.

One of his positions in the latter part of his career was the certification of welded structures used in safety critical applications. Helped to have the welding credentials whenever someone told him that whatever splatterjob they submitted for sign-off was the best anyone could do

Too many jobs around here for the riff raff to come too close.
Ha ha, so true. People tell me I should lock my van and I say all that's in there represents WORK
and I have no problems. (dropcloths, sandpaper, Paint Thinner.... )

I agree with Bert - college is a SCAM for too many people.
I know a plumber making over $200k. With ONE helper.
I know a painter making over $100k with NO help.
I know, however, a married couple in their early 50's, both lawyers, and they
are pulling in $750k minimum. You know what I call those people?
Clients.

I think they made College a 'Class' thing as in - "Oh, you didn't go to college?"
So now that person is less. F that.
Not interesting in spending $80k+ on a 'Genders Studies' degreee, only to make $25k per year in a stupid desk job.

FOOLISH. Sadly our youth in too many cases are not trained for the simplest of tasks, like using a screwdriver.
Or taking apart a bike, maybe patching a tire tube? Or putting gas into a lawnmower.
Or actually cutting the grass. Painting a fence. SWEEPING out the garage.
Picking up the plates from the dinner table and properly stacking and setting them along with the utensils.
It all starts at home.
Too many homes have no start button.

I have fulfilled a dream of mine now. I'm a degreed engineer who works with a group who are entirely made up of mechanics pipe fitters and welders.

And I can weld a little bit!
