            About the Instructor


            This course is designed for metal application engineers and technicians who are looking to learn and practice metal laser-based powder bed fusion system operation.

            The comprehensive focus of this course is on acquiring safe and efficient machine setup and build completion hands-on skills from EOS experts during the in-person training. Its dependence on the learner's interaction — i.e., "learning by doing" in the practice task modules — will also have a positive long-term impact on the learner’s data preparation skills.

            It is recommended to have active Materialise Magics and EOSPRINT2 software licenses

            Learners who take this course should have a strong technical background, though no specific experience in additive manufacturing is required. Familiarity with Materialise Magics and EOSPRINT 2 fundamentals would be very beneficial during the training.

            If you're interested in exploring the AM process on a deeper level, we highly recommend taking our Process Engineering and Science Certificate program. Contact us at for more info.
