The new partnership gives Tooling U-SME the authority to administer U/LINC and leverages the company’s access to industry and academia, as well as its competency-based learning and development solutions.

“Tooling U-SME has a proven track recording of providing solutions that help welding educators enhance their practice, leading to measurable results and improved performance outcomes,” said Jason Scales, Ph.D, Business Development Manager for Lincoln Electric’s Education Division.

“We’re excited about this partnership because it will allow us to make our industry-recognised welding curriculum even easier for welding school instructors and industry trainers to integrate and enhance their welding programming.”

Lincoln Electric established U/LINC to help welding educators find the detailed curriculum resources needed for teaching welding at all levels.

“For 15 years, we have partnered with Lincoln Electric to bring industry-leading welding content to the manufacturing community, and we are proud to further extend our partnership by providing management support for the company’s U/LINC programme,” said Jeannine Kunz, Vice-President of Tooling U-SME.

“Our goal, as is Lincoln Electric’s is to bring the most relevant and forward-thinking content to market, and by providing accessibility to more people, we will ensure the industry’s workforce is well prepared to perform in today’s and tomorrow’s advanced manufacturing world.”
