The Manufacturing Technology Centre’s Additive Manufacturing Apprenticeship has been awarded accreditation by the Specialist Awarding Organisation for Engineering and Manufacturing (EAL).
The MTC has been developing new additive manufacturing units with the support of EAL to provide employers with a pipeline of technicians fully skilled in one of the fastest growing advanced manufacturing technologies in industry.
The new units, which will be offered at the MTC’s Advanced Manufacturing Training Centre in Coventry as well as Oxfordshire Advanced Skills in Abingdon, will cover topics such as operating an additive manufacturing machine and carrying out post-processing of additive manufactured components.
Additive manufacturing, or industrial 3D printing, is now employed across many manufacturing sectors in a variety of materials, producing everything from simple tools to major parts for aero engines. The MTC is home to the National Centre for Additive Manufacturing (NCAM) bringing together one of the most comprehensive combinations of equipment and capability in the UK.
