In light of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and our priority for the health and welfare of our members and staff, ASTM International has decided that it is inadvisable and impractical to hold the committee meetings in Prague on April 27-May 1. The decision was based on several factors, including, but not limited to:

    • Continued review of information and recommendations from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and other governmental bodies.
    • Input from our members whose organizations are increasingly concerned with travel and the large gathering in Prague.
    • Watching the expanding trajectory of the coronavirus.

    Staff managers will be contacting committee leaders to plan alternatives for conducting committee business. For any committees that collected money for events, ASTM will work to issue refunds as necessary. Attendees are responsible for cancelling their own hotel reservations.

    Looking forward, we will rely on these and other relevant criteria and input points to assess the status of future scheduled ASTM meetings and events. Please consult our meeting webpage for the most up-to-date information. Thank you for your understanding and continued commitment to ASTM International.

    About the Event

    With more and more industrial sectors adopting additive manufacturing (AM) technology, there is a large demand for a skilled workforce to support the rapid growth of the field. As a leading driver of AM technology, ASTM is committed to filling the AM knowledge gap by providing world-class training from industry leaders to equip the future AM workforce with highly valued technical skills.

    The ASTM Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence (AM CoE) has made Education and Workforce Development one of its key focus areas for promoting the acceleration of AM adoption. The AM CoE’s training is tailored to industry needs and incorporates the latest technological advances and standards to prepare students to take on the current challenges in the field.

    About the Course
    The AM CoE is offering a 3-day course that covers all the general concepts of AM process chain. This course will equip attendees with core technical knowledge related to common AM practices and will allow them to earn a General AM Certificate that will serve as the foundation and pre-requisite for earning future specialized role-based AM certificates through the ASTM AM CoE. The General AM Certificate program is developed in full compliance with ASTM E2659-18, Standard Practice for Certificate Program.

    Who Should Attend
    You are welcome to join if you are just stepping into AM or if you have experience and are looking to advance your knowledge and stay relevant. The course is open to individuals from government agencies, industry, and academia with any level of AM experience, including those with no prior experience at all.
