America was built by workers who used hands-on skills passed down from generations of laborers. Today, hands-on trades demand more technical skills working with sophisticated equipment and often taking the future of the planet into consideration as well. These are modern Skilled Trades, and fields like welding, HVAC, electrical, electronics, and manufacturing are more technologically complex than ever.

There’s a gap that exists between the skills employers want in their team members, and the skills held by most of today’s workforce. Fortunately, for more than 70 years Lincoln Tech schools have helped students bridge that gap and launch rewarding, exciting careers that are anything but “desk jobs.” If you want to work in the field instead of an office, and if you want the satisfaction of knowing you’re doing work that really matters, these skilled trades are for you!

Lincoln’s Skilled Trades Programs Include:

Technicians in these fields install, service, repair and maintain the machines we depend on every day. At Lincoln Tech, you’ll train with technology and equipment that lets you build these hands-on skills while also incorporating “green” technology concepts like energy efficiency and renewable energy systems. Partnership programs with employers like Hussmann and Johnson Controls can give you a more direct path to a career when you graduate, and we’ve teamed up with providers like Haas, Yellow Jacket, Miller Electric, Hampden and more to make sure you’re working with the same industry-standard tools used by the pros.

There are more than 1.5 million jobs projected to open by 2026 for technicians in these industries*. What’s more – Lincoln Tech schools are the leading statewide providers in many locations for electricians, welders, HVAC specialists and manufacturing professionals**. Employers know they can count on Lincoln Tech grads. Count on Lincoln Tech training to become the kind of job candidate they want to meet!

Programs, partnerships, and equipment vary by campus.
