Lincoln Electric will open its new Welding Technology & Training Center, on its Euclid, Ohio, campus in January. Classes begin in the new facility on Jan. 8.
The two-story, 100,000-square-feet-plus facility doubles Lincoln’s welding education capacity. The new center features a virtual reality training lab with 10 VRTEX Virtual Reality Web Simulation Trainers, 166 welding and cutting booths, six seminar rooms, 13 welding school classrooms, a 100-seat auditorium, an atrium and a reception area.
“This new Welding Technology & Training Center reinforces Lincoln Electric’s dedication to education and the future of welding,” says Jason Scales, manager, Education Solutions, Lincoln Electric. “We design our welding curriculum and programs to meet the needs of students and educators at every level – from basic welding and teaching techniques through advanced processes, such as robotic automation, specialized code certification, welding theory, welding procedure specifications and more.
“We know the demand for comprehensive skills and knowledge is higher than ever and we’re committed to preparing the next generation of welders, managers and industry leaders,” adds Scales.
