The EWI Skillform Center is pleased to announce its preliminary schedule of in-person and online classes for 2021:
- Fundamentals of Welding , EWI’s most popular course, covers welding metallurgy, weldability and defects, arc welding, solid-state processes, robotic applications, codes and qualifications, design and testing, high energy density processes, and nondestructive evaluation. The standard 5-day course will be held in-person at EWI’s Columbus, OH, headquarters on March 8-12, and a concentrated 3-day session will be offered in-person at EWI’s Buffalo Manufacturing Works facility in April 27-29. Both classes include hands-on modules in EWI’s welding and additive manufacturing labs. Professional development certificates will be awarded to participants upon course completion.

- Resistance Solid-state Welding is a new online course that offers an in-depth overview of resistance welding basics and technologies. This web-based training program, designed for technicians and engineers, will be self-directed and will enable enrollees to complete the curriculum at their own pace. Launching in early 2021.
- Fundamentals of Additive Manufacturing (AM) is also new to the EWI course list. It provides a high-level introduction to 3D printing technologies and applications for industrial production, including an overview of all seven AM technologies and designing for AM. Like the Resistance Solid-state Welding course, this online program is self-paced and can be completed over a period of time. In the future, it will also be offered as an in-person four-day training class at EWI. Launching in early 2021.
- Introduction to Robotics will be held in person at EWI’s facility in Buffalo, NY, in spring 2021. The new, one-day course covers industrial robots, cobots, and safety considerations, and offers hands-on sessions in the EWI robotics lab. Class size is limited to five attendees.
As the new year progresses, the EWI Skillform Center will be adding additional classes and workshops. Visit EWI’s Events page for up-to-date information.
