The ASTM Professional Certificate Course in Additive Manufacturing is comprised of 8 modules that cover all the general concepts of the AM process chain.

This course will equip attendees with core technical knowledge related to common AM practices and will allow them to earn a General AM Certificate that will serve as the foundation for the role-based certificate courses offered by ASTM AM CoE. Attendees will complete a multiple-choice exam upon course completion.

Who Should Attend?

Whether you are just stepping into AM or if you have experience and are looking to advance your knowledge and stay relevant, this course is for you. The course is recommended for technicians, managers, engineers, and other individuals from government agencies, industry, and academia with any level of AM experience.

Why Sign Up for This Course?

  • Gain core foundational technical knowledge covering the entire AM process chain
  • Stand out in the industry with ASTM E2659-18-compliant certificate from the globally recognized ASTM AM CoE
  • Chart your own path: This course is the first step toward multiple AM CoE role-based certificates
  • Each module taught by experts from academia, industry, national labs, and regulatory bodies
  • EARN A DIGITAL BADGE after successful completion of this course. These badges are an innovative way to showcase career knowledge, skills, and abilities obtained through professional development. Add the badges to your digital portfolios or share on social and professional networks.

Course attendees interested in receiving 3.2 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) should complete a CEU application form. A certificate will be sent electronically to the attendee approximately 1-2 weeks following successful completion of the exam.
