Discounted rates are offered for Corporate Members and their employees. A number of different options are available. Companies can participate in NADCA’s education courses at its headquarters in Arlington Heights IL, at a local chapter or in an in-plant course (the instructor comes to you). Certain online courses are available to members only and can be accessed through the member’s homepage at www.diecasting.org.
Online Education System
Online education and training offers students the convenience of taking courses anywhere and the ability to complete courses at their own pace. In addition, companies and individuals can save money on travel expenses and reduce time away from the office. NADCA’s new Online Education System integrates NADCA webinars as well as previously offered online courses.
Each course contains a video presentation, PDF of the slides shown, additional resources and when applicable, the option to test your knowledge on the course viewed.
Currently training blocks are being offered exclusively to NADCA Corporate Members. NADCA currently has three training blocks: Operator Training, Engineering and Management.
NADCA Chapters are located throughout the U.S., and Canada. 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.
All NADCA programs, courses and installations can be brought to the worksite for presentation. The cost in savings and scheduling advantages can be substantial! The course(s) can be tailored to the specific needs of an organization, and the overall costs are much lower. The program and scheduling can be centered around your needs and the class size can be larger. The die caster has much more overall control over the education and training process.
The Train-the-Trainer program is the first step in installing NADCA’s In-House Operator Training Program. This is a cost-effective method of providing the skills and knowledge needed on the shop floor because it provides die casting companies with their own in-house trainers. Employees trained as instructors will have a more realistic idea of company goals and may be received more favorably by employees over outside instructors.
Exclusive to Corporate Members:
Only Corporate Members are eligible to purchase NADCA Training Blocks to use for in-house training.
