The ASTM Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence (AM CoE) has made Education and Workforce Development one of its key focus areas for promoting the acceleration of AM adoption. The AM CoE’s training is tailored to industry needs and incorporates the latest technological advances and standards to prepare students to take on the current challenges in the field.
