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. The course will include instructional training and a written exam that challenges attendees to show knowledge in the practical learning theory and technical skills covered during the course. 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.
