    Florida is one of the top states for welding jobs in the United States. In 2015, there were over 12,000 welders employed in the state. There were about the same number of welding jobs in 2009, which shows that the total employment of welders in the state is holding steady. While the number of jobs is not projected to increase dramatically in the next few years, new welders will be needed to fill positions as the population ages. There is also always a high demand for skilled and certified welders who have experience with new technology.

    Underwater welding is one of the top welding industries in Florida and some of the largest employers of underwater welders are located in the state. As an industry, underwater welding is popular due to its high pay. A total of four of the top ten largest underwater welder employers are located in Florida. These employers include Subsea Global Solutions, Dive-Tech International, Inc., Logan Diving & Salvage, and Sea Sub Systems, Inc.

    In 2015, the median salary for welders in Florida was $36,900; however, more skilled welders and welders in more specialized industries can make more. Given the geography of Florida, many welders work either with underwater diving teams or in shipyards. These types of jobs require dedicated welders who can work in more extreme conditions. Many welders also work in more traditional industries such as auto body repair and construction.
