Lincoln Electric Education Partner Schools (LEEPS) is a multi-tiered program that teaches welding instructors at every level of education – from junior high school to technical college and beyond. In each track, participating schools earn Lincoln Electric qualifications and other benefits by meeting specific program requirements.
LEEPS keeps instructors current and relevant within the welding industry because it includes a professional development system integrated into the program. This is a value to both instructors and administrators at participating schools.
The welding industry will need skilled and knowledgeable welders in the years and decades ahead. Lincoln Electric is developing the education sector that will train them. LEEPS is the critical component in the ongoing process of preparing educators for the future of welding.
