How Can Composites Help My Business?
This half day workshop aims to demystify the world of composites as well as provide the opportunity to understand the advantages and disadvantages of some of the key processes. It is very much aimed at businesses and organisations who are not using composites already and are considering reasons to introduce a new production process.
This interactive workshop will explain what composites are, how they are formed and constructed and where they are used in various sectors. The workshop will look at the materials used in composite construction and there will be practical hands-on time in the workshop assisting with the setting up of a mould for a composites process.
On successful completion of the workshop, you will have a good understanding of a composite structure and have assisted with setting up a mould using the appropriate materials and resins. There will be the opportunity to discuss with the tutor the potential to introduce composites or a different process into your organisation.
You will also have the opportunity to progress to a choice of short courses that focus in more depth on a specific process.
All courses have progression routes to our funded Level 2 and Level 3 short courses, or ultimately the Composites Technician Level 3 apprenticeship.

"When you start out as a Fisher you're looking between 2-4% of the total catch which is how we get paid off the top of the catch but 2-4% could be £300 a week, or it could be £1500 a week. It varies completely but I've never been to sea for less than £150 a day."Laurence Gilson
