Lincoln Electric’s Welding School instructors officially cut the ribbon on the new Welding Technology & Training Center.
Last week we joined Lincoln Electric Holdings Inc., a leader in arc welding and cutting solutions, at its open house and ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the grand opening of its new Welding Technology & Training Center in Cleveland. The event, held on March 21, showcased the company’s expanded educational offering as well as commemorated the centennial anniversary of its welding school — the longest-running welding school in the world. Check out some photos from the event below.
The Welding Technology & Training Center includes private training areas for companies like John Deere or Caterpillar to come in and train their employees.
To simulate working in field, the Welding Technology & Training Center API section welding booths are attached to Lincoln Electric engine drives that are placed outside the building. If a pipeline welder is there for training and wants to attach their own rig, there is capability to attach their rig to the stalls as well.
A tour group, including CE contributing editor Brad Kramer, learns about the API section of the Welding Technology & Training Center. Currently the center features 10 API welding booths.
