along with the safety glasses, a respirator is your friend. I like the 3m with pink replaceable filters.

technically you are supposed to be fit tested for them,. but if you try it and feel fine with it, I wouldn't worry. they work great.

Don't forget there are lots of different filters and sizes of those filters even the pink ones. I normally have 5-8 different filters on hand for different jobs all dependent on what can be expected. Some of my filters are the same type but for different uses. If I had the money a nice Powered Air Purifying Respirator would be the next purchase.

Depending on the type of work you're doing there will be different certifications. If you're doing AWS code work (D1.1 structural or D1.5 bridge, etc) then you have to certify (be tested) to your employers certified/engineering approved weld procedure, and your cert is only good for that employer for as long as both are kept current and you remain employed by them. If you leave their employment then that cert is no longer valid and you're no longer certified.

As far as state issued welder certs... never had to deal with it. Maybe a CWI in a state that does that stuff can chime in.

In Oklahoma you can get state certified, but you will have to retest for just about any job. I work in the oilfield and carry my state card because some oil companies prefer to have certified welders to work on the drilling structure and mud lines. If I started doing refinery or pipeline work I'd have to test for that job. One of the guys I work with had his certification right out of welding school. He went out for a pipe job and was told "I don't care if you got certified by Jesus himself, your still testing for me."

Was that certification by any chance from Tulsa Welding School?

There is now even a deck welding certification to qualify you to weld floor decking down on structural building floors for a pour..and all only 7018 or better..makes it a PITA to plug weld through decking with 7018 because you have to flick off the flux on the end of the rod everytime,unless you want to look like woodpecker pecking at the decking everytime..lol.

The old days of carrying around a pouch full of 5P rod and "sparkling" away is over for the decking and bridging
I used to carry a little rock around to tap my rod against and break off the flux on the tip beause of that.
