    3D Printing Training Course: Introduction and Personal Hands-on Experience.

    The 3D printing technology is progressing increasingly fast. Numerous companies around the world invest billions of dollars into research and development of 3D printing related equipment, software and materials. Every day more and more companies adopt 3D printing as a tool for product design, prototyping and manufacturing. This increasing application of 3D printing resulted in high demand on employees who know how to use a 3D-printer. According to the recent data reported by Wanted Analytics, a global talent marketplace analyzing company,

    35 percent of all engineering jobs now require 3D printing skills. At the same time companies experience difficulties finding candidates with the required skills.

    The 3D printing training offered by LA New Product Development Team will provide you with essential 3D printing knowledge and skills. Upon completion of the course you will receive a certificate. This will give you an obvious advantage over other job candidates and will open doors to many interesting opportunities working at top-tier companies.
