This article has a complete list of welding schools in Maine.

You can see them all below.

But let me give you a bit of advice first when it comes to choosing your welding program.

Becoming a certified welder and getting all of the welding technology education is an excellent way to make your entrance to the trade.

However, you need to be sure that the welding program you will take aligns with your job and career idea. Welding trade is tough and the only way to survive is to love the industries you are a part of.

If you love pipe welding then make sure that your program has pipe focused classes for example. You will excel in your training classes much faster if you love what the school is teaching you.

Sure, tomorrow once you graduate, you could be working construction, fabrication or have employment in a welders shop of some sort. But while you are in school programs training it won’t feel as rewarding if you are not enjoying it.

Your school should have a program you like, a low student to teacher ratio, excellent equipment, quality welder education and skills transfer from the mentors to students. On top of that, it is great if the school is close to where you live but don’t be afraid to venture out of your comfort zone. Welding career is worth all of the blood, sweat and tears let alone a few months or weeks away from the home.

The Average Welders Salary in Maine

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the US state of Maine has a $51,870 average annual salary for welders. This is a pretty big number and especially if you think about the high end jobs that are raising the bar of the average pay.

Indeed.com reports an average of $19,78 hourly wage for welder trade workers in this state. The Toyota and McDermott are the two highest paying employers for welders with $40,63 and $36,11 per hour respectively.

Maine has a lot of well-paid jobs but once you become a certified gas metal arc welding trade worker, you won’t have anything stopping you from working all over the US and even the world. Welders are always in demand almost everywhere on the planet. This career will let you experience travel, demanding work and have you prove yourself as someone who has what it takes to weld steel, get the job done and do it all while loving it.
