What is the LEEPS Program?

LEEPS is a national program developed by The Lincoln Electric Company. The National Coalition of Certification Centers (NC3) is the certification body of LEEPS. The LEEPS program provides schools with a complete suite of portable, stackable industry-recognized welding certifications. The program involves a Train-the-Trainer initiative.
