I have searched the internet and repeatedly found that the only Welding goggles that should be used to look at the sun are those with a rating of 14 or higher. I cannot find any in my area with a rating higher than 11. Since I don’t understand exactly what the rating means, I am wondering if I could possibly stack 2 or 3 lenses with a 11 rating to make something equivalent to a rating of 14.
Thanks for any advice and help.
The rating level has to do with the level of shading the lens has. A #14 shade is what has been determined to be a safe level of shade to view anything having to do with the sun.
You should really find a place that has at least a #14 shade lens for your safety…and..I suppose that stacking two lenses together isn’t a bad way to go also…as long as the view isn’t too dark..
Any welding supply store should have a #14 shade….or anyone else that sells welding type supplies.
I’m looking into obtaining a certificate in welding. I have looked at some courses offered at community colleges and they seem to fit what I am looking for. But is this the fastest way to be certified? And if it is not, what is?
I have been looking online but I have not found what I am looking for. I am looking for a program that can get me a welding certification in a several month time frame.
David, You are confusing educated/ trained and certification in welding. If you don’t have any experience in welding you need to be trained. You get that training in a trade school or community college. To be certified in Welding you do a coupon and it gets tested either through cut ups, x-ray, or other types of tests. If it passes it will then qualify you for certification on that metal group and that position. That is how you get "certified" in the physical act of welding. If you are going for the technical or engineering side it takes ~ 4 years to become an engineer (2 for a technician). The only way you can get a "cert" in a few months time is to have the experience in the first place then take the physical test and it pass.

I have an interview for a welding position at a company that builds and repairs propane tanks. What Welding process is used mostly? And any other info that I should know about the subject would help.
They will have to meet the Code requirements for a vessel repair but the welding method and procedure is not set by the code but by the company doing the repairs. It has to meet certain Code requirements but it can use several different types of welding from stick rod to MIG.
Also there are small propane tanks and big propane tanks. Each might have a different procedure because of wall thickness or even the portion of the tank being repaired.
Regardless you will have to pass a welding test for the procedures being used.
