The best welding training u can get is at zachry industrial and fluor corp. They are both free but with the economy they won't have any more classes till next year. I went to zachry and it was great but still no job. Or you can just go to houston community collge or san jacinto college in pasadena. Its not about what you kno its about who you know trust me.

Vince in Johnson City, Tennessee said: This may be a stupid question, but I know a guy who got paid $250,000 for 6 months of welding work in Germany. He got the job from a guy who was getting paid $3 million for 6 years of work in Africa. I'm just wondering - is this typical of overseas welding jobs? If anyone knows of someone who has done this sort of gig, how did they get it and what skills were needed?

i doubt very much he made that much; however, they do pay a lot because of the danger....100,000 would be realistic for a year contract with no tax if a war zone and paid vacations..............i hope this helps

CANADA said: The work starts in march, up in the oil sands an around alberta.
It's true you have to go through the visa process with immagration, back ground check. On the other hand canadians just drive across the boarder into the U.S. and go to work thanks to the politicians , it's a one way policey. They need 400 pipe welders and 600 mechanics. in alberta.

what company and who do i contact for these welding jobs in canada? are they on the pipeline? would you happen to know what kind of pay range they offer?....thanks

The work currently is not that busy where non sponsored foreign workers would have an easy time getting here. Coming into spring and summer there should be lots of work in Alberta and Saskatchewan, and whether you're union or not will dictate which companies you would be working for.

That's a long debate, and being union, of course I would be biased. There are benefits to both sides and there are many non union workers that choose to never join the union so they must have their reasons. In the western provinces the union's rate and pension are a little bit higher but not greatly so, and seems like the non union sites offer better deals in the way of incentives such as flights, accommodations, and hours of work, so it just depends on what you're looking for.

hammond100 in Redcar, United Kingdom said: What Don Tyler in Vernal has not told you about is the sheer number of suicides that he has on his conscience. This is because of his attitude towards everyone he knows and meets. He ran a business doing steel decking with Jim Dover, and several of their employees committed suicide. This business was based on Skippers Lane in Middlesbrough.

I have just discovered that the name of the company Don Tyler was running with Jim Dover was called Deck 'n' Steel Site Services Limited which was run from the Evans Business Centre on Skippers Lane, Middlesbrough.

They disappeared owing many hundreds of thousands of pounds to many cliants, and the business was part of the Carnaby Structures Limited business based in Bridlington. They had several other companies such as a company supplying building supplies and materials. This was called Equipt.

Don Tyler's has many suicides on his consience and his wife Jan Tyler presently works for DTW in Guisborough. Jim Dover drove his own wife to suicide.

I run a charity organisation which is presently based in the building where they occupied, and we are having to deal with all their former clients who constantly visit looking for their money.

I have had a visit from someone this morning who is owed £98,000 by them, and would be interested if anyone knows their whereabouts.

If you come across them, do not have any business dealings with them.

The business is now being run by Roger Phillips.

If your a U.S. citizen looking for work in canada, you have to go through a complete back ground check, finger printing etc.
If you have had a DWI chances are very thin you will be aloud to work in canada. All so, all canadians must be working in that field.
On the other hand all a canadian has too do is drive across the boarder go to a union hall or contractor no questions asked. THANK YOUR POLITICIANS FOR MAKING IT A ONE WAY STREET. The unions lobbied for this during busy (outage ) season.

I have worked with alot of canadians threw out the north east and mid west, during the outage season and they didn't have too go through any back ground check. At the boarder they said they were visiting.
Couple years back the oil sands in alberta had a man power shortage, so i covered all the bases to help out my friends to the north,but what i had too go through on my own wasn't worth the trouble so i stayed home. I respected the laws that were in place. Not like the southern boarder in the U.S. these people will break all AMERICAN LAWS AT ANY COST, AND NOT RETURN HOME AS I WOULD HAVE AND THE CANADIANS DID THAT I WORKED WITH.
Try and stay warm in alberta i know the winters can be brutal

Unions are not required to find you work.
They train and represent there members.
Contractors call the union hall and then the dispatcher contacts it's members for dispatch.
