Cleveland – Lincoln Electric once again is offering its Welding Educator’s Workshop, specifically designed for instructors and welding educators. The four-day seminar will take place July 12-16, 2010, and is limited to 24 attendees.
The program focuses on welding safety and the four basic welding processes, SMAW, GMAW, GTAW and FCAW. The objective is to improve participants’ process knowledge and skills in the classroom as well as in the lab with an update on welding technology. The seminar includes 60-percent classroom instruction and 40-percent hands-on experience.
Emphasis will be placed on Lincoln Electric’s Nextweld® advanced technologies. Other topics include the oxyfuel process, plasma arc cutting, basic metallurgy and the welding of aluminum and stainless steel. There will also be a breakout session on the importance of high technology in the classroom. In addition, Lincoln will discuss the support provided by the company for the No Child Left Behind™ program.
Although the course is geared toward educators, it is also open to end users and distributors.
A morning snack, lunch and one group dinner will be provided, as well as a tour of the manufacturing plant and R&D laboratories. Provided materials include The Procedure Handbook and all welding consumables.
