    There is really no average, is it lake, river or ocean welding, if in the ocean what is the debt, Often the pay is by job not by hour.

    50 to 75 K a year would be a good average.

    From research on the web, using Google, I do agree with the previous answer of from 50,000 to 75,000, but it depends on the type of welding and where it is; as ocean or river, etc.
    Some do make upwards of 100,000.
    Best wishes.

    An average salary vs. grade index would be interesting to look at if there were one, but the truth of the matter is that salaries for welder-divers cover a wide range. We know some welder-divers earn $15,000 per year while others earn in excess of $100,000. Because the majority of welder-divers are paid on a project-by-project basis, salaries are subject to the same variables as work availability. In addition, other factors such as depth, dive method and diving environment affect pay rates. The company with whom you gain employment should be able to tell you the salary range you can expect to earn.

    It is suggested that if you have no prior commercial diving experience you should attend one of the recognized commercial diving schools. Commercial dive schools vary insofar as duration of course, cost, etc., however, most offer a basic commercial diver certificate upon successful completion. The candidate may be required to pass a diving physical prior to school acceptance and in some cases a written exam. It is suggested that a dive physical be taken regardless, to avoid going through the expense of training only to later find you have a disability that prevents your entering the profession. A listing of U.S. commercial diving schools accredited by the Association of Commercial Diving Educators can be obtained by contacting: Association of Diving Contractors International (ADC), 1960 FM 1960 W., Suite 202, Houston, TX 77069; (281) 893-8388; FAX (281) 893-5118.
