How to Become an Underwater Welder.

If you think you want to become an underwater welder, keep in mind that you not only have to possess certified welding skills, but you also must be a certified commercial diver before you get certified as an underwater welder. You’ll need quite a bit of cash to acquire the proper education and then go through the certification and apprentice process before you can work as an underwater welder.

The salary for underwater welders varies widely. Some welder-divers earn around RM45,000 a year while others earn more than RM300,000. Salaries tend to be subject to the same variables as work availability because welder-divers are paid by the project. Other things that affect the pay that a welder-diver makes is the depth at which they have to work, the diving environment, and the dive method.

Basically, Underwater Welding has 2 main categories:

1) Wet Welding
2) Dry welding

Wet welding simply means that the job is performed directly in the water. It involves using a special welding rod, and is similar to the process used in ordinary in-the-air welding.

This is the cheapest method & the fastest to get the job done. All needed power & air supply units are above ground, via cables & air lines.

But because of the effects of the water itself on the arc & the puddle process, it tends to be of somewhat less quality then dry welding.

Dry welding: (Hyperbaric Welding) is done within a pre-built chamber to provide the dry air conditions. The welds are high quality, but the preparation costs & times involved can make it a less desirable way to go in many cases.

Both methods have risks. But with careful preparation, safe equipment, & a top notch welder, you’re “good to go”.
