MTC Training launches real time online courses

July 23, 2020

Manufacturing Technology Centre Training and the National Centre for Additive Manufacturing has launched “Online and Live” – a suite of interactive online courses delivered in real time.

The courses, using fully interactive digital platforms, are designed to upskill engineers in up-to-the-minute additive manufacturing skills, processes and best practice.

Led by senior engineers from the Coventry-based National Centre for Additive Manufacturing, the courses will deliver industry-leading additive manufacturing training remotely. The courses will be conducted live on schedules dates with a limited number of learners per trainer, allowing for meaningful interaction between the trainer and learners.

Subjects in the first suite of Online & Live include Advanced Introduction to Additive Manufacturing, Design for Metal Powder Bed Fusion, Laser Processing, Best Practice in Powder Management, and Reverse Engineering Parts for Additive Manufacturing.

David Hughes MBE, managing director of the MTC’s Advanced Manufacturing Training Centre said, “Our instructional design team and expert trainers have worked tirelessly to transform our industry-leading courses for digital delivery, ensuring we can continue to support the manufacturing sector’s future skills needs despite the current COVID-19 restrictions on training centres. The new Online & Live model gives our learners a truly interactive learning experience, maximising opportunities for engagement with the trainer alongside group discussions and individual and collaborative tasks throughout the course.”

Full details of each course programme are available at Online & Live where learners can view the schedule and subject matter for the day before signing up. To mark the launch of Online & Live courses are available at a reduced cost of £295 plus VAT per full day for a limited time.

David Hughes added, “MTC Training is revolutionising the skills landscape. Using their insight into the latest technologies, techniques and processes, experts deliver an extensive training offer at the cutting edge of industrial innovation, from apprenticeships right up to senior management level. As part of the MTC, NCAM aims to accelerate the uptake of additive manufacturing by developing the technology and systems to address the challenges of this rapidly growing technology which will have anticipated global sales of £20 billion by 2022.”
