This one-day course has been specifically designed for people working within the composites industry in non-technical roles (e.g. sales, marketing, finance, human resources, administration, etc.), who need to be conversant with composite materials and their terminology, but who don’t necessarily have a scientific background. It is also suitable for those outside the composites industry who are looking for a gentle introduction.
The course assumes no prior knowledge of composites, starting with the most basic fundamentals and progressing at a comfortable rate to cover all of the key aspects of composite materials, their manufacturing and their applications without excessive technical detail. Extensive use is made of hands-on material samples throughout the day to aid visualisation and understanding.
