    Time to change careers

    As of yesterday I washed my hands of the dairy industry and decided to look into going to polytech and go for further training in welding as it is something I have been able to do for a long time but just never pursued it. So now I am living in pirongia temporarily till I can find a house to rent then will be looking at finding out when courses start etc so I can get into some decent work that does not involve those bloody cows. But for now some jackos must die and intend on going down to one of my old workplaces for a bit of a bomb up if the weather plays ball.

    I used to be a dairy farmer. Went arable farming in the UK, farming is so much better without those bovines. You will miss it though.

    There is much better money to be made in specialised welding, the more 'tickets' you can get the better. Boat builders are crying out for ali/stainless BUT there are real health risks from the fumes. If you even have the slightest lung complaints it makes it much worse.

    Not too keen on looking at being a deckie on a fishing boat I have limited access to my son as it is and don't want to be at sea while my boy is on his school holidays which is the only time I get to see him. With the welding I only know arc, MIG and gas and have always wanted to learn TIG so tech would be a good choice for me so I can go and learn it and brush up on the other stuff and come out with a bit of paper. Was thinking of trying to get a job somewhere like giltrap in otorohanga for example just simple stuff like silage wagon frames etc.

    It might be a plan to go and see them, and enquire about the prospects of a job and find out what experience, skills and quals they require?
