Lincoln Educational Services Re-Opens Nashville Campus

Lincoln Educational Services Corporation, a national leader in specialized technical training, including automotive technology, the skilled trades, health care, IT, culinary and cosmetology, announced May 18 it has re-opened its Nashville, TN, campus and resumed on-site instruction on a limited basis.

"On March 17, in accordance with local and federal guidelines, we transitioned our campus' classroom instruction to remote, distance learning due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic," said Scott Shaw, Lincoln Tech's president and CEO.  "We have worked closely with our regulators and local authorities to develop a re-opening plan with our primary objective being the health and safety of our students and staff. 

 

"Initially we will be bringing back local students and those nearing graduation who need the hands-on skills training to complete their education. On campus dormitories will re-open at a later date for out-of-area students. We will gradually transition to full-scale operations as is practical and allowed."

 

The company has approximately 784 students currently enrolled at its Nashville campus, located at 1524 Gallatin Ave. Currently, 85% of those students are training for careers the U.S. Department of Homeland Security deems essential.  
 
"We're very excited to welcome our students back to campus," said Bob Butterworth, president of the Nashville campus. "They have diligently kept up with their studies via distance learning, and they've shown an impressive commitment to their future career success. Their resiliency in the face of this adversity has been inspiring. And the dedication our instructors have shown in delivering course content through new platforms has been remarkable."

 

The Nashville campus, formerly known as Nashville Auto-Diesel College, recently celebrated its 100th anniversary. The school attracts students from around the country---even around the world---and on-campus career fairs attract some of the best-known companies to its campus to meet, interview and recruit Lincoln Tech graduates. 

 

The Nashville campus has an amazing history of graduating successful technicians in programs such as:

 

  • Automotive Technology---including the company's exclusive high-performance option and Lincoln's special Mopar CAP partnership program
  • Collision Repair and Refinishing Technology---providing a convenient blended learning format that allows students to complete some of their coursework online from home so they can spend more time on campus painting, airbrushing and performing hands-on auto body repairs
  • Diesel and Truck Technology---employers like Caterpillar, Ryder, Scott Equipment and Crown Lift all seek out Lincoln graduates for open positions on their teams
  • Heavy Equipment Maintenance Technology---Tennessee projects double-digit growth in this field by 2026*, and 4 out of 5 students from the Nashville campus get hired in the field after graduation**
  • Welding and Metal Fabrication Technology---more than 450,000 welders are projected to be hired around the country, including thousands in the Southeast, by 2026*
