Offshore Rig Welder/ Pipe or Structural
by Eric Stringer
(wichita,kansas via camp leatherneck afghanistan)
I am looking to break into the offshore career field as a welder, I can pass a G6 in stick, Tig or any other process. I have been employed as a welder in the Military and Aviation Industry for 20 years. I am currently deployed as a civilian contract welder in Afghanistan, and have been here and Iraq for the last 7 years. I have a secret clearance, and loads of hours traveling by numerous types of helicopters and have been trained in Helicopter egress and degress safety procedures. I am used to tight quarters/living with many types and numbers of people and being away from home for up to 180 days at a time. I have a military class one physical and am in good health.
I do not hold a offshore or rig safety or the HUET or BOISET certs but am willing to get them with an offer of employment.
I do not have any AWS certs as I have found that most employers will require me to take the same test for them upon employment.
I have been certified to AWS standards from my previous employers some of which have been
