For 100 years or more, Lincoln Electric has committed to train operators in the theory and techniques of arc welding. John C. Lincoln and his brother James F. Lincoln knew very well that to sustain the welding industry, they must commit resources to train operators, engineers and educators in the correct safety and performance practices for welding as well as the design of weldments.

      The Lincoln Electric Welding Technology Center is committed to training educators, industry leaders and skilled trade workers in the craft and science of welding. Our curriculum and programs are designed to meet the needs of industry by addressing every segment of the skills and knowledge spectrum – from basic welding and teaching concepts up through the latest in advanced manufacturing technologies. The Center is an internationally recognized foundation for the development of best practices in welding education, which we share with welding educators at every level.
