The Lincoln Electric® Welding School — an industry leader in welding education– offers courses 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.
Courses cover basics in: plate and sheet metal, pipe welding, plasma, TIG, MIG and Flux Cored Arc Welding…. and advanced courses are offered as well. Check out the full line up of welding classes at the Lincoln Electric website.
They even offer a special Motorsports Welding School, a five day technical program focusing on basic motorsports materials (aluminum and stainless steel) and applications (GMAW, GTAW, Oxy fuel, and plasma cutting). A basic and an advanced course is offered.
The newest addition to the welding school is a welding and safety maintenance course for repair welding applications.
Designed to instruct welders in the automotive repair, construction and maintenance fields, the course demonstrates and instructs students in various welding processes including stick (SMAW), MIG (GMAW) and TIG (GTAW) welding, as well as oxyfuel cutting.
“This class was created in order to meet the demands we were getting from students attending some of our other courses” said Carl Peters, the head Lincoln Electric’s training department. “We’ve had individuals who work for municipalities, hospitals, school districts, and many other fields come away from the class safer, more knowledgeable, and better trained welders.”
The Maintenance class includes a one-week basic course with daily sessions on specific welding processes and hardfacing applications. Students spend 80 percent of their time in the booth learning to weld. Additionally, Lincoln limits class sizes to maximize learning and guarantee one-on-one instruction time.
