Following the success of the first edition of AM General Personnel Certificate course at Auburn University in March 2020, AM CoE is offering the second edition of the course through online mode. 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.

About the course
The second edition of the AM General Personnel Certificate Course is offered online to support the AM community to continue learning in these difficult times. The course comprises of 8 modules that covers all the general concepts of the AM process chain. To give flexibility to the attendees in taking the online classes, the course is scheduled such that two modules will be covered every week to complete the entire course in one month.

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. Attendees will complete a multiple-choice exam upon course completion.
