More than 450,000 welders are projected to be hired around the country by 2026, making it one of the country’s most in-demand skilled trades. More than just lighting a torch and joining pieces of steel, the field requires complex hands-on skills and science-based knowledge of how to heat gases and treat different types of metal. After completing welder training at Lincoln Tech’s Nashville, TN campus – a Nashville mainstay since 1919, when it opened as Nashville Auto-Diesel College – you should find plenty of opportunities across the Southeast. States like Florida and Georgia rank near the top for demand in the industry, and Tennessee and Kentucky are projected to combine for more than 17,000 welder openings by 2026!
