NCC training courses first to be approved by IOM3

14 October 2021

The National Composites Centre (NCC) is delighted to announce that six of its composites training courses have been approved by leading global professional body, the Institute of Materials, Mining and Minerals (IOM3).

The NCC courses are the first to be approved by IOM3 for quality and professional development. Courses that achieve the Quality Assured and PD Approved status contain content that is delivered to a high, independent standard, assuring learners they are receiving expert training, designed to increase their knowledge and skill-set in their chosen area.

The courses approved include our popular Introduction to Composites, Introduction to Manual Prepreg and Introduction to Resin Infusion, and are taught both in person and via virtual classrooms.  

“We’re delighted to receive IOM3 approval and quality assurance for our courses – it’s recognition of the huge amount of experience and expertise that our trainers put into the courses that they develop and teach.

“Having our courses quality assured and professional development approved really enhances our offering, giving our learners increased confidence in the quality of our training products. IOM3 - one of the leading professional bodies worldwide for people in the field of advanced materials - are the end point assessors for our Composites Apprenticeship scheme, and so furthering an already excellent working relationship was a natural next step.” Helen Woods, Head of Skills and Workforce Development at the NCC.
