March 9 – 10: ASTM Certificate Course at AMUG 2024

Finally, just before AMUG 2024 starts in Chicago, ASTM International’s AM Center of Excellence is holding a Certificate Course on “Methods of Qualification & Certification for Additive Manufacturing” from March 9-10, also in Chicago. The training course is based on both ASTM and ISO standards, and is aimed at intermediate to advanced users who are currently using, or plan to use, AM in serial or critical applications. Rather than a series of lectures, the experienced instructors will offer discussions and mini-workshops, share real-life best practices, and give attendees plenty of chances to ask questions. Participants will receive the ASTM AM Quality Assurance Certificate after completion, and an exam will be held online two weeks after the course.

“This course covers the requirements and routes to validation for metal additive manufacturing parts produced by powder bed fusion and directed energy deposition manufacturing processes.  This course will leverage recent case studies from the PBF and DED world to provide context for Structural Integrity challenges and opportunities.”

You can register for the course here.
