Additive Manufacturing Certification

Master the Principles of Additive Manufacturing

Earn your Additive Manufacturing Certification through a collaborative program between Tooling U-SME and UL. It’s the gold standard in additive manufacturing certification, combining UL’s multi-tiered training program and Tooling U-SME’s professional certification. It’s one industry-recognized and industry-validated credential with the backing of two industry leaders.

The additive manufacturing industry is currently a $16 billion industry and is expected to grow to $40.8 billion by 2024 (Source: Wohlers Associates). With this growth comes a demand for employees with the right skills and knowledge to drive their organization’s additive manufacturing initiatives forward. The process of earning certification prepares individuals with this knowledge, and the respected certification provides recognition of the individual’s demonstrated competencies.

Individuals may pursue Additive Manufacturing Certification at the Fundamentals or Technician level, depending on their knowledge and experience. These certifications create a flexible, modular pathway for mastering the principles and processes of additive manufacturing.
