To be a globally recognized leader in additive manufacturing workforce development and a catalyst in AM industrial adoption.
Provide a comprehensive program that educates and trains the additive manufacturing workforce at all levels, while continually incorporating new advances to respond to industry needs and leverage standardization, certification, and AM CoE partner expertise.
Personnel Certificate programs are designed to meet the large demand for a skilled workforce to support the rapid implementation of AM technology. These certificate programs are aimed to fill the AM knowledge gap by providing world-class training from industry leaders to equip the future AM workforce with highly valued technical skills. Personnel certificate programs comprise of General AM courses, role-based AM courses, and short courses on AM. The General AM course provides a comprehensive understanding of AM technology, and the role-based courses help to gain skillsets for specific AM roles such as Designer, Safety Manager, and Quality Engineer.
The webinar series covers diverse topics in AM value chain delivered by speakers from industry, academia, and regulatory bodies.
Workshops are intended to provide the current AM state of the art across different domains such as materials, processes, testing, inspection, qualification, and certification. The workshops are categorized into Snapshot Workshops and Specialty Workshops.
Snapshot workshops are intended to provide a general understanding about the entire AM value chain covering different elements in AM processes, AM application across various industries, the gaps exists in AM standardization, and research needs to fill those gaps. Snapshot workshops are conducted twice in a year in conjunction with ASTM F42 standard committee meetings. This workshops are led key experts from Industry and academia, and also serves as a platform for the discussions on latest standard development activities. The topics for the future workshops are selected based on the feedback from AM stakeholders, previous attendees.
Specialty workshops provide a deeper understanding on a specific topic. The topics covered are both technology specific and industry specific. This workshop gather insights from technical experts on gaps, pain points, identify opportunities, and suggest methods to develop solutions. One of the intended outcomes from this workshop is to develop strategic guidance that can lead to development of standards.
E-learning courses are designed for flexible completion periods. These courses are suitable for working professionals who want to complete a course at their own pace and ideal for organizations who want to train a large number of employees without disrupting its operations.
