Designed to support engineers, designers, researcher, lead technicians and technicians involved in development, tool design or component manufacture using resin infusion techniques.

This resin infusion course is designed to cover the requirements of the National Occupational Standards for Resin Infusion (SEMTA and COGENT), using the latest resin infusion production techniques. Each delegate will produce composite mouldings, incorporating a variety of features and using a range of techniques and processes to include laminates and sandwich structures using different resin, fibre and core materials.
