Virtual Tour of Lincoln Tech’s Denver CO Campus
Dr. Kelly Moore, President of the Lincoln Tech Campus in Denver Colorado, presents a virtual tour of the facility’s five program shops and classrooms. The Denver campus offers three automotive-related programs; Automotive Technology, Diesel & Truck Technology and Collision Repair and Refinishing Technology. The campus also provides training in skilled trades, including HVAC and Welding. All five programs prepare graduates to enter their chosen industry with the knowledge and skills required to build a successful career as a skilled tradesperson.
The tour begins in the 212,000 square foot facility’s Automotive Technology school. At 43,000 square feet, there is plenty of room for students to work in 60 repair bays that feature 18 automotive lifts, three of which are heavy duty lifts. Additional equipment consists of alignment racks, as well as tire mounting and balancing machines. Presented next is the Diesel shop, with nine large bays that can handle light, medium and heavy duty diesel trucks. Welding booths are also available for teaching techniques specifically used within the diesel industry.
The Collision lab is a 17,000 square foot facility with 19 bays and two paint booths, as well as a dedicated paint mixing booth. Training includes how to properly handle and mix waterborne and water soluble automotive paints. The space also includes welding booths to familiarize students with the techniques needed to properly weld vehicle structures as part of the collision repair process. The program prepares the graduating students to earn their industry I-CAR certification.
Tools used in the automotive, diesel and collision programs are supplied through a partnership with Matco Tools.
One of Denver’s Air Conditioning, Refrigeration and Heating Technology (HVAC) classrooms is sponsored by Johnson Controls. Students learn the skills needed to qualify for entrance into the residential and commercial climate control industry as new technicians. Miller Welding sponsors Lincoln Tech’s 90-booth Welding Technology lab, where students learn the skills needed to competently weld using MIG, TIG, stick and pipe welding techniques, as well as metal fabrication.
Denver’s virtual tour concludes with the introduction of key staff members from their Admissions, Financial Aid, Education and Career Services teams, who support students throughout their educational journey.
