Supplier partners with college to offer welding training program.

LANSING, Mich. - Cleveland-based Lincoln Electric Co. has partnered with the Michigan Technical Education Center at Lansing Community College to offer welding training programs at the Center's 52,000-square-foot facility.

According to Lincoln Electric, the new M-TEC facility, which opened in August, will provide customers and distributors with another training option in addition to its Electric Welding School in Cleveland.

"With so many of our customers involved in the automotive industry, we are pleased to offer welding training in the state of Michigan," said Carl Peters, director of training for the welding equipment maker. "The New M-TEC will use Lincoln's welding curriculum, with courses being taught either by certified LCC or Lincoln instructors. It's a win-win situation for all parties - for the center, Lincoln and our customers."

The new M-TEC facility will be outfitted with 43 welding stations in the welding lab and eight stations in the autobody area. Each station includes Lincoln fume-extraction equipment and a multi-process welding power source.
