In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of its legacy welding school, Lincoln Electric will open its new Welding Technology & Training Center on its Euclid, Ohio, campus in January. The center’s opening highlights the company’s role of running one of the oldest continually-operating welding schools.

The two-story facility has more than 100,000 square feet, doubling the company’s welding education capacity. It 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.

The training center is equipped to help students focus on career pathways and looks to the industry’s future in its programming offerings. It will also showcase and integrate the company’s latest technologies and solutions into the curriculum.

“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,” says Jason Scales, manager of education solutions.
