Since 2012 our company has started to educate and train workers for composite material application and all lamination processes.
Ask the production manager at a composite manufacturing what is the company’s biggest need. You are likely to hear skilled labor.
For example, only two of 10 new employees last out the probation period. The cost of in-house training can be thousands of euros per technician. While some formal education programs exist, they are too few to effectively meet the current need. Moreover, program depth and content are inconsistent, and most engineering school graduates have little to no exposure to composite materials.
As the use of composites continues to expand across a wide array of industries and new technologies are developed at a faster rate than ever before, our company is building yachts using newest technologies in composites manufacture and meantime we are educating and training new employees.
Our educational program includes trainings in all areas related to the production of high-quality composite products for a variety of tasks and customer needs, applicable to all areas of application, ranging from architectural products, boats and yachts and luxury mega-yachts.
