Lincoln Tech Unveils New Atlanta Campus with Grand Opening Extravaganza!

Parsippany, NJ, May 03, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Lincoln Educational Services Corporation (NASDAQ: LINC), a national leader in specialized technical training for more than 75 years, is set to officially open its new campus in East Point, GA. The much-anticipated Grand Opening is scheduled for Thursday, May 9th starting at 12PM, marking a significant milestone for the corporation and the community. The event is expected to draw attention from industry representatives, local hiring partners, and notable regional political figures, including Georgia State Senator Sonya Halpern and East Point Mayor Deana Holiday Ingraham, highlighting the widespread support and enthusiasm for the new facility. This will be Lincoln’s second campus within the Atlanta area, expanding its reach and capacity to serve more students in this region.

The East Point campus is set to offer a wide array of career training programs crucial for the current job market, including Automotive Service Technology, Electrical and Electronic Systems Technology, Welding and Metal Fabrication Technology, and Air Conditioning, Refrigeration and Heating (HVAC) Technology. These programs are especially relevant given that these fields are projected to add more than 100,000 jobs across Georgia by 2030. In addition to these diploma programs, Lincoln will also provide Associate degree-granting Service Management programs, offering students a pathway to further elevate their career prospects upon graduation.

Highlighting the importance of this expansion, Lincoln Tech’s President and CEO Scott Shaw commented on the critical role the campus will play in fostering career opportunities for graduates, as well as addressing the workforce demands in these high-demand fields. Shaw noted, “For many years there has been a demonstrated need for skilled, trained professionals in these industries. The gap between the skills needed to fill these roles, and the skills held by many of today’s job seekers, threatens to slow productivity and economic growth – and we’ve heard that same sentiment from our employer partners. Today, with the grand opening of our new East Point campus, Lincoln Tech is proud to take the lead in training a new generation of workers who can revitalize the workforce in these fields.”

The grand opening marks not just the expansion of Lincoln Tech’s physical footprint but also its commitment to enriching the Atlanta market and beyond. Campus President Don Lane expressed enthusiasm about the potential this new facility holds for students across the region and for the employers eagerly awaiting the fresh wave of skilled graduates. The introduction of new programs at the East Point campus is poised to forge new career paths for students, complementing the existing offerings at the Marietta Campus. The new, larger facility in East Point is strategically located to accommodate up to 700 students, offering convenient access to students hailing from the city and its southern environs through its proximity to Interstate 85.

Career growth projections can be found at for the years 2020-2030 and are current as of April 17, 2024.
