Composites Training Series  Red River College & Composites Innovation Centre

Red River College & Composites Innovation Centre

Whether you are new to composite manufacturing and looking for a foundation in composite skills training; an operator who would like to learn more about other key processes in composites fabrication; a lead hand or manager who would like to more deeply understand composites processes; or you simply want to learn more about how composites are made, these courses are for you.

Red River College, in collaboration with the Composites Innovation Centre (CIC) has developed a number of new hands-on training courses designed specifically to support the general manufacturing composites industry. These modular training courses provide the foundational knowledge and critical hands-on training required to effectively work within the fibreglass manufacturing industry as an operator.

Composite Tool Maker

Through a combination of theory and hands-on training over 10 days, individuals will develop the essential skills and knowledge essential when starting a career in composite tool making.   Individuals will have the opportunity to build tooling for open and closed moulding processes and produce parts from the moulds they have created. This advanced module is designed for individuals with previous, extensive experience working with fibreglass manufacturing and who have an aptitude for problem solving and producing high quality work.
