    I’m sorry if this is in the wrong place.
    I’m currently looking for some advice I’m a fully qualified coded welder with a full apprenticeship and 9 years experience within the oil and gas industry. In my area there’s only one good employer which I have just left.
    I’ve just started with a gas transporter company as a pipeline trainee. I am going to be doing Icorr Cathodic protection, pipe coatings inspector, paint inspection, pipelines agricultural inspector, banksman, very deep excavation qualifications and possible p11 and mpi inspection.
    My question is, is this a good move or should I go back to what I’m good at and know? As the company doesn’t seem to inspire confidence but I want to move away from being a welder.
    Any help/advice would be appreciated.

    Wouldn’t becoming a welder inspector be the more natural progression.

    Think any option for the O and G industry is going to be difficult at the moment and for the foreseeable future, the price of oil is still above its long term average.
