Local Courses
There are NADCA education and training chapters located throughout the U.S., Canada and Mexico. Chapters are an extension of NADCA's education and training, and most offer selected NADCA national courses and programs locally . . . thus, expanding the technology transfer opportunities for every die caster. Chapters also offer a range of other technological and operational education programs specifically selected and tailored to the needs of die casters and suppliers in their chapter areas.

In-Plant Programs
All NADCA programs, courses and installations can be brought to the worksite for presentation. The cost in savings and scheduling advantages can be substantial!

In-House Programs
NADCA is now offering the "In-House Training Program for Operators and Technicians!" The In-House approach responds to the need of die casters to have control of the schedule, content and cost of training. It is a multi-module program that is highly cost-effective.

    Managing Greenhouse Gas 08/24/2017 Greenhouse gas emissions are an unavoidable by-product of die casting. Electricity, natural gas, gasoline, diesel, propane and magnesium cover gases all contribute to a facility’s carbon footprint. It is important for management to know the carbon footprint of their facility to: understand the facility’s impact on global warming, recognize plant inefficiencies and comply with federal regulations. NADCA provides a Greenhouse Gas Calculator for Membership Plus members. This calculator will convert energy and magnesium cover gas usage into CO2e emissions. This course will explain how to use the NADCA Greenhouse Gas Calculator. Add to Calendar
