Lincoln Electric has successfully passed a rigorous accreditation process to become an IACET Accredited Provider (AP) of continuing educational programming.

The company now will be able to offer accredited continuing education units (CEUs) for educational workshops, seminars and welding school courses held at its global headquarters in Cleveland.

“This recognition is a major milestone in Lincoln Electric’s ongoing development of strong continuing education and training initiatives,” notes Jason Scales, Manager of Education Services at Lincoln Electric.

“We now can offer valuable CEU credits to those who enroll at programs here at our Cleveland headquarters, which takes our training to a new level.”

Looking Ahead

This news comes just one day after Lincoln announced it had assembled its U/LINC™ curriculum for welding and cutting, the latest in a line of education-based initiatives from the company.

Through its new status as an IACET AP, Scales says Lincoln Electric’s in-house educators are assessing continuing education and training programs for potential CEU opportunities for future participants.

Lincoln is also looking at new courses to develop for future opportunities for welding professionals to obtain both CEU and skills growth.
