Short Courses, Seminars and Workshops
ACMC provided education, training and continuing professional development (CPD) for the composites industry for the 20 years between 1987 and 2006 including bespoke training for individual companies like British Aerospace, British Airways, GKN, British European (flybe), GE and Vestas Wind (UK). The provision included occasional discussion meetings/seminars (formerly known as workshops) which brought together key personnel to discuss the state-of-the-art of specific technologies and consider whether a roadmap for the future was appropriate. Over 2000 engineers, technicians and managers have benefitted from our manufacturing-focussed workshops and short courses.
Our principal focus is now undergraduate honours degrees:
We are working closely with Shakspeare Services to pioneer enhanced skills provision in collaboration with both industry and the further education (FE) sector providers. In that context, we would be particularly grateful for feedback, thoughts and comments regarding all aspects of education and training for the composites industry.
