The new Stratasys Additive Manufacturing Certification Program provides companies in manufacturing, design and medical industries with measurable qualifications to prove applicants are workforce-ready and will contribute to business success.

According to Statasys’s Director of Marketing, Global Education Gina Scala, there was no standard way to judge credentials before this program. It is not always possible to align job readiness with additive manufacturing skills, so workers fail to meet employer expectations. Stratasys has developed this certificate program to create that alignment of skills required for workers to deliver an acceptable job.

The program was developed alongside leaders across educational institutes—including The Wentworth Institute of Technology, Dunwoody College of Technology, Iowa State University, UC Irvine and Milwaukee School of Engineering. In addition to addressing evolving requirements for skilled additive manufacturing workers, the education modules provide consistency of workforce readiness with an approved range of skill requirements.

Educational institutions enrolled in the certification program have access to 40 contact hours of exam preparation content organized via module and accessible directly via Stratasys. Other resources for participating institutions include hands-on projects and labs, GrabCAD and InsightCAM software, module exams, instructor notes and presentations. Enrolled students can tap into key technical resource guides, industry use cases, software and preparation notes.
