ive been trying to get into inspection. i have a lot of knowledge in welding already. i have been doing industrial and and structural for the past 6 years. i also went to ocean corp. i have one problem i have a felony.. im not to sure how that works but would like to know. the only reason why i have not done anything with it is due to the fact times were rough and going back to a welder i make more doing that as for if i were to get in inspection entry level. im at the point were im tired of the hard work and just ready for something laid back. i have both aspects for being a welder and understand what the inspectors are looking for. going to that school made me a better welder today and i feel i am much farther than some of the older guys i work with.
