This training course is a combination of theory class and hand on practice at Shanghai Service Center. In the practice part, trainees were provided with hand on test manual and machines. The time for hand on practice on troubleshooting to 50% in the whole training course. Learning difficulty was reduced and motivation was improved.


So far, LINCOLN China had trained over 215 service engineers in China, including 59 service engineers focused on import welding machine. Some of them come from distributors, some come from end users.
