Reducing the weight of structures has in recent years become a critical point of focus for many different sectors, such as machine building, transportation and civil construction. The appropriate handling of materials in lightweight design structures is the key success factor for preserving resources and reducing costs. Unfortunately, practical experience often shows that designing and handling rules for new materials are not being respected. The professional training concept underlying the "lightweight professional" courses address this issue.
Within these courses, industrial employees will not only obtain information, but also acquire the knowledge in a manner appropriate to their individual educational backgrounds. Based on results from a recent Europe-wide survey, the content and the format of the "lightweight professional courses" are designed to meet industrial needs.
Lightweight professional courses aim to deliver high quality content and ready-to-use practical information. Participants will experience an open environment atmosphere with the opportunity to exchange experiences with other participants and industrial branches.
The courses follow the requirements of ISO EN 17024 and are certified by an external accreditation body.
Required knowledge for participation on the training course
The courses are aimed at employees in industry whose work involves planning the manufacture of lightweight products, and at employees in companies that want to start manufacturing lightweight products.
