Professional pride and development.

I went down to Victoria with my wife to look at a welder I was thinking of buying. The young man selling it seemed like a nice enough fellow and is a welder himself but I found a few gaps in his knowledge alarming. When I asked him about it, and mentioned this stuff is all in the level C text books, he said that he was just concerned with getting out of school and making money.

I see this syndrome all too often and I’m afraid to say that it’s a big part of what’s wrong with the trade. To to any welding students who might read this I would say pride in one’s work and professional development go hand-in-hand and since you’re at school you might as well read the damn books.
