Training and Education

The EPMA recognises the importance of Training and Education, with significant effort dedicated to continuing these activities for the benefit of the future PM Industry.



Thanks to the unique combination of high level industrial specialists and academics these seminars (formerly 'EPMA Short Course') provide unrivalled insights into the practical capabilities and applications of powder metallurgy (PM) process.

Developed from the work of its European Powder Metallurgy Institutes (EPMI), the EPMA has used its international connections and unique role within the European PM Supply chain to provide a most successful educational activity.
