Composites seminar set for June

The American Composites Manufacturers Association is partnering with the International Yacht Restoration School, the Rhode Island-based marine trades and technology school, for a composites certification seminar.

The three-day event will be held June 27-29 at the IYRS campus in Bristol, R.I.

The IYRS-ACMA seminar will combine CCT (Certified Composites Technician) classroom training with hands-on lab experience, preparing participants to take the ACMA-administered CCT exam.

The seminar will focus on four CCT programs: open molding, vacuum infusion, light resin transfer molding and wind blade repair.

“CCT is considered the gold standard for composites training,” ACMA chief staff executive Tom Dobbins said. “The program was established in 1999 to respond to the composites industry’s clear need for uniform training and technical skills. Since then, more than 4,000 CCT designations have been earned.”

IYRS director of student and industry relations Clark Poston believes the value of the CCT program “will only increase over time” and stresses that the more it is used by the industry, “the more significance it has for the individual technicians.”
