Education & Training
The Lincoln Electric Welding School
The Lincoln Electric Welding School performs courses throughout the year on the various types of arc welding methods to educate and train students in arc welding safety, processes, techniques and Lincoln products as well as qualification and certification programs.
Since 1917, the Lincoln Electric Welding school has instructed over 100,000 men and women in the various methods and techniques of safety and arc welding processes. These Lincoln-trained students are in high demand by a variety of welding fabricators, at pay levels that exceed industry average. In addition, the school is listed by the Ohio State Board of School and College Registration, under certificate number 71-02-0059T. The Lincoln Electric Welding School is the oldest and one of the most respected arc welding schools in the United States.
Courses are designed to teach the skills of arc welding that employers want. To maximize learning, class size is limited to 15 students, which allows for each student to have their own welding machine. This type of one-to-one approach ensures that all students will maximize arc time, which accounts for approximately 90% of the time actually spent at the school. The rest of the time, a student is in class receiving presentations from Lincoln instructors, which includes videos, 35mm slide and overhead presentations. Graduating students leave with confidence, skill and pride as well as a sound understanding of safety and arc welding.
Lincoln Electric Welding School Instructors are well experienced in teaching methods as well as in hands-on skills. With more than 100 years of experience and many types of certifications, Lincoln Electric instructors offer helpful hints and techniques that they have learned over the years so that students are able maximize their experience while at the school.
The Lincoln Electric Welding Technology Center
The Lincoln Electric Welding Technology Center performs professional seminars throughout the year on various topics of customer interest to inform participants of the latest in engineering practices and concepts, ranging from the fundamentals of weldments design, to advanced subjects such as fracture mechanics and fatigue.
The Welding Technology Center is dedicated to meeting, and exceeding, our customer's specifications and expectations. Collectively, our staff has over 1,000 year's of experience in the welding industry, and are anxious to apply their expertise to your application. The Welding Technology Center can help you improve the quality of your product, reduce production costs of your welding operations, or provide solutions for safer welding conditions. Weld Tech can do this by: evaluating individual operations, optimizing processes and procedures; proposing cost reduction methods that offer savings generated from unique approaches to safety, quality, process and materials; conducting training that addresses the needs of welders, supervisors, and engineers.
Since 1917, The Lincoln Electric Welding School has instructed over 100,000 students from around the world in the arts of arc welding safety and processes. Technical seminars provide information on the latest issues in safety, quality, processes and Lincoln products. Distributor programs update Lincoln Distributors on welding processes and the Lincoln product line.
Since the First Edition in September of 1933, The Procedure Handbook, has provided knowledge to welding people throughout the world with sales in excess of 500,000 copies. Now in it's 14th edition. Various other resources are made available through The Lincoln Electric Bookstore or the James F. Lincoln Arc Welding Foundation. Professional seminars, held for over fifty years, inform participants of the latest in engineering practices and concepts, ranging from the fundamentals of weldments design, to advanced subjects such as fracture mechanics and fatigue.
