U/LINC Curriculum

U/LINC™ Welding and Cutting Curriculum

U/LINC is a welder training learning management system created by Lincoln Electric that provides  each welding instructor with ready-made curriculum for teaching welding -- everything from the most basic welding and safety practices to some of the most advanced aspects of the welding trade -- such as production, engineering and manufacturing, automation and CNC plasma cutting. The welding courses in the U/LINC curriculum are continuously updated to meet the requirements of academic administrators, the demands of the commercial welding industry and the needs of students who want to learn how to weld.

Regardless of how the material is presented -- written documentation, instructional videos, online welding courses or other formats -- U/LINC delivers instant feedback on performance and dispenses with burdensome textbooks. The system is offered in three packages so that a welding school buys only what it needs -- over 1000 lesson plans, lab activities, student assessments and presentations -- all AWS S.E.N.S.E.-compliant and aligned with most state competencies. U/LINC also enables students to take their education with them. Wherever they learn, wherever they go, their record of transferability goes with them.

Create a Course


Every good welding instructor needs a curriculum plan to properly teach someone how to weld. But planning can be a time consuming and difficult process, even for the most experienced welding teacher. Regardless, curriculum plans for welding instruction are required under most state and industry standards. It may not be a popular part of the job, but it’s mandatory for welder training.

Course Builder makes the whole process of teaching quicker and easier. Course Builder is a curriculum planning tool that creates a program to deliver specific and appropriate welding courses to your students from the U/LINC curriculum.  You can also track the plan's compliance with state standards and requirements for welder training.

Course Builder takes the user through a series of easy-to-follow templates that ask about the course of study, teaching level and other relevant welding information. After just a few keystrokes, Course Builder creates a comprehensive curriculum plan that spans the time frame of your choice – everything from the coming week to a full year of welding instruction.

Once you’ve populated your calendar, Course Builder tells you where your training program stands in terms of compliance. The tool creates a comprehensive audit detailing which state standards your plan meets and where it falls short, enabling you to modify the plan as needed.
