As more industry sectors discover the benefits of additive manufacturing, its adoption grows. Although many organisations see the cost, time and performance benefits, it remains a challenge to find a strategy to fit the technology within the current organisation operations. Add in the unique organisational, design, training, manufacturing and inspection requirements and suddenly AM can seem more of a barrier to production, rather than a benefit.
This eLearning will provide you with an overview of the considerations, processes, equipment, controls and steps involved to integrate additive manufacturing technologies and ensure the facilities, materials and products meet the manufacturers specification and any applicable legal requirements. This course was designed to identify the areas that both individuals and organisations should investigate further before embarking on their AM Journey and will support you to develop a business case for adopting AM.

What makes this adaptive learning method unique?
Through years of offering training courses, we have found that our clients rarely need the same level of training for all their employees. Some are experienced and need an update, others are new to the concept of Additive Manufacturing.
Our adaptive learning uses a ‘teach by asking’ approach where it tests your knowledge and your confidence before it teaches you. This helps you learn more efficiently and focus in on what you really need to study to gain competence.
That's why our new cloud-based, eLearning approach adapts to the level of knowledge and experience of the student. As your employees go through the training, our adaptive learning engine feeds a number of continuous data points into an adaptive algorithm. This adjusts the learning path for each person, giving them a faster, easier and more focused way to learn.
A certificate is issued upon completion.
The course, depending on your knowledge level, takes approximately 1 - 2 hours to complete.
You will have access to the course for 12 months, giving you the opportunity to access the content and refresh your knowledge at any time during this period.
