Composite materials are extremely versatile and used for a wide variety of applications. These high-performance materials are desirable to the aviation and aerospace sector because of their exceptional strength and superior physical properties.
Our 150-hour Composite Fabrication and Repair course consists of both classroom and hands-on training, which allows the learner to understand the beginning-to-end fundamentals of composite fabrication and various types of composite repair scenarios. The program will introduce the student to several materials used within aerospace and other applicable industries such as Carbon Fiber, E-Glass, and Kevlar.
Sandwich panel fabrication, pre-preg lay-up, wet lay-up, and resin infusion techniques. Training will cover the operation of applicable tools, supplies, and necessary equipment.
Processes to include ply orientation, bleeder/breather flow characteristics, symmetric and asymmetric laminates, vacuum bagging techniques, leak detection and mitigation, cleaning, drying, material removal (sanding/routing/milling, etc.), templates, curing cycles, and installation of fasteners. Repair processes include core, scarf, step, overlap repairs, fastener hole repairs and liquid shimming. Hot-bonder repair equipment demonstration and usage.
A strong emphasis provided toward safety training, hazardous material handling and disposal.
