Coventive Composites launches online composite materials training course
The first session of this introductory composites training course will take place on Feb. 16 and 23.
Coventive Composites (Chesterfield, U.K.) announced on Feb. 3 that it is now offering a virtual classroom training course that is specifically designed to give a broad introduction to composite materials and provide the necessary background knowledge to enable informed discussions with customers, colleagues and collaborators.
The course aims to provide a gentle but thorough introduction to composite materials, such as how they work, how they are made, what they are used for and what advantages (and disadvantages) they can bring. By the end of the course, Coventive says, all attendees will understand the basics of what a composite material is, what ingredients go into making a composite and how composite materials are converted into finished parts.
Coventive states that the course is suitable for anyone that is looking for a comprehensive introduction to composite materials, such as designers who are familiar with metals but who want to understand how composites differ, new starters in the composites industry, existing composites staff in non-technical roles (e.g. sales, marketing, human resources, etc.) who want to learn the “language” of composites so they can communicate more effectively with colleagues and customers, and interested outsiders who would like to learn more about the composites industry and the opportunities it provides.
This virtual course is an outgrowth of Coventive’s in-person courses and other composite materials training, which the company has been providing to attendees in a wide range of backgrounds for more than 10 years.
Ben Hargeaves, sales and marketing director at Coventive Composites, says, “We’re excited to offer our highly-regarded courses in a live, online format. Delegates will benefit from our presenters’ extensive knowledge with the convenience and interactivity afforded by online video meetings in a virtual environment.”
This is a split-date course and the first edition will be held over two sessions on Feb. 16 and 23. For more information and to book a place visit coventivecomposites.com/training/online-training-course/.
