Additive Manufacturing Technician Certificate (ADMTC)

Additive Manufacturing Technician Certificate (ADMTC)

The Additive Manufacturing Technician Certificate prepares students for positions in industries that use additive (3-D printing) technology, including aerospace, consumer products, medical, and transportation.
Students gain knowledge and skills needed to operate and troubleshoot additive equipment and use metal, thermoplastics, and other additive materials. Students also gain technical skills needed for process design and material specification, as well as thorough understanding of safety and environmental protocols required for each substrate.
Students who earn the certificate may choose to continue their education in Applied Technology Specialist associate's degree program.
