National Coalition of Certification Centers (NC3) and Lincoln Electric Education Partner Schools (LEEPS) Four Process Welding Train-the-Trainer

Join us November 14 - 18, 2022 at the Welding Technology and Training Center (WTTC) at Lincoln Electric headquarters in Euclid, OH.

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.

What is Train-the-Trainer?

Upon completion of this training, you will be a certified NC3 instructor who provides standardized, world-class welding training at your organization. You will experience the curriculum, assessments, and exams first-hand before implementing this program in your own classroom.
