America Makes named exclusive co-sponsor of Tooling U-SME’s Additive Manufacturing certification programs

Tooling U-SME, a leading provider of manufacturing training solutions, recently introduced the industry’s first additive manufacturing certification.  America Makes is the official co-sponsor of this program. The Additive Manufacturing Fundamentals Certification and Additive Manufacturing Technician Certification are the first and only programs to validate an individual’s knowledge of industry-standard concepts in additive manufacturing. Each were developed for those seeking to advance their careers, as well as community colleges and companies that want to grow a well-trained additive workforce.

The Additive Manufacturing Fundamental Certification is an exam-only program driven by industry requirements for fundamental additive manufacturing knowledge required for those new to the technology. The Additive Manufacturing Technician Certification is an exam-based program, accompanied by a skills guide, to support both knowledge application and skills building for entry-level additive technicians, and is the pre-cursor to an Additive Manufacturing Technician Apprenticeship program.

Strong certification programs are a key to the advancement, acceleration and adoption of additive manufacturing, both across education and industry, as well as a critical factor for developing a skilled workforce. America Makes is pleased to be working with Tooling U-SME, to provide this resource to our membership and beyond.
