This 2.5 day, onsite Certified Composites Technician Instructor Course is an opportunity for current CCT certified individuals to become qualified instructors. The course will combine classroom training techniques with hands on exercises in a composites manufacturing facility to reinforce and show practical ways to deliver instruction. Participants who successfully complete the course are certified to teach CCT study courses and administer CCT exams to candidates. These CCT- Instructors (CCT-I) will be able to take the learned skills and provided materials back to their company, school and throughout the industry to deliver more effective and engaging training.
This event will be hosted by ACMA at a member facility that has provided a safe training environment with necessary distancing and mask requirements to meet the highest industry standards of health and safety.
Updated in 2021, this new version is now available. The Basic Composites Manual is a complete reference and source of guidance for those who are interested in information regarding composite materials and composites manufacturing processes. The Manual is included in all new CCT enrollments.
