Industry Organizations and Partnerships

Throughout the years, Lincoln has fostered many meaningful partnerships with businesses and organizations that help enrich the lives of our students. From helping students prepare for industry-specific certifications, to providing tools and technology to help them on the path toward a new career, Lincoln’s partnerships contribute to the success of our students in various ways across multiple careers and industries.

Likewise, within the various industries in which we offer career training programs, there are important organizations that lend credibility to your knowledge and skills by offering certifications that affirm your level of expertise. These organizations oversee the certification of qualified candidates among a variety of fields – from automotive to medical assisting.

Here’s a glimpse into some of the many organizations we have partnered with to enhance the quality of our career programs. We encourage our graduates to turn to them as well to validate the quality training they’ve received at a Lincoln school.


AMT Logo American Medical Technologists (AMT)
Founded in 1939, American Medical Technologists (AMT) is a nationally and internationally recognized certification agency and membership society for allied health professionals. Their vision is to be recognized as being the premier certification and membership organization for allied health professionals, particularly those in the professions of medical technology, phlebotomy, medical assisting, dental assisting, and medical office administration.

Graduates of all our Medical Assistant programs are eligible to sit for the Registered Medical Assistant exam administered by AMT.

ASE Logo National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE)
ASE is the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence, an independent, non-profit organization established in 1972 by the automotive industry to improve the quality of vehicle repair and service through the voluntary testing and certification of automotive repair technicians. All Lincoln automotive instructors are required to be ASE certified in the areas they teach.

HVAC Excellence Accreditation
HVAC Excellence is a not-for-profit organization that has served the HVACR industry since 1994. They aim to improve competency through validation of the technical education process. By setting standards and verifying that these standards have been met, HVAC Excellence inspires the industry to excel.

HVAC Excellence has a long history of working with Lincoln as a provider of certification and post-secondary student assessment exams for a number of their campuses. Within the last few years, as Lincoln continually seeks out ways to enhance and validate our programs and provide additional skills and services to our students, HVAC Excellence has assisted Lincoln in the development of a green technologies course (i.e., the Residential Energy Auditor Course.)

Instructors at Lincoln Technical Institute in Union, New Jersey and Lincoln College of Technology in Grand Prairie, Texas have earned and/or are currently pursuing the HVAC Excellence Certified Master HVACR Educator (CMHE) credential; the highest credential that can be conferred by HVAC Excellence upon an HVACR educator.  HVACR educators take Certified Subject Matter Educator (CSME) exams to verify the depth of an instructor's knowledge and ability to relate the subject matter effectively.
