There is a decent number of welding schools in Nebraska and in this article, you will get a list of all of them.

Before we get to the list let me give you a tip on choosing between different welding schools.

When considering a welding technician program the number one thing to consider is what this program is preparing you for. Make sure that you get into a welding school that offers training classes that match your welder job expectations.

If you want to weld pipe for example then find a program that has a pipe welding focus. On another hand, if you like being versatile and knowing everything then search for programs that will teach you everything from blueprint reading to every welding technology process.

Studying in a school that just kind of touches on what you really want to study will teach you welding but it will be harder to work in the field that you want. Think of the pipe example again. Let’s say you go through a typical welding course that doesn’t focus on pipe welding. You will need to learn how to weld pipe on the job and that makes things a bit difficult.

That’s why you need to search welding training classes that will propel you upwards to your desired welding position.

Average welders salary in Nebraska

The average welders salary in Nebraska is $43,910 according to US Bureau of Labor Statistics.

That is a bit below average on the national level but don’t let that discourage you from this trade. There are many US states that have significantly higher salaries.

Don’t be afraid to travel around the US to work where the salary is higher. Welding trade will have you traveling anyway so you should focus on working in the places where you are happy with what you get paid.
