In 2018 the Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI, Knoxville, Tenn., U.S.) and Abaris Training (Reno, Nev., U.S.), the world leader in advanced composite training, announced an agreement to host collaborative training workshops to leverage the expertise of the researchers and professionals in both organizations with the resources available at the IACMI facilities across the U.S.

The IACMI/Abaris training workshops allow both organizations to better serve the need to grow a skilled composites workforce nation-wide. The workshops are aimed at mitigating the critical skills gap in the composites technical industry by teaching the latest technology to students in a friendly and professional atmosphere. The training sessions include both classroom and hands-on instruction, offering attendees a well-rounded learning curriculum.

Upcoming workshops include “Advanced Composites Structures: Fabrication & Damage Repair Phase 1,” which will be held April 1-5, 2019 at the National Wind Technology Center outside of Boulder, Colo., U.S. For registration information, click here.
