IAMQS International Additive Manufacturing Qualification System

The International AM Qualification System is composed by a set of qualifications for different proficiency levels in the field of AM technologies, grounded in industry requirements and validated by experts.
The System uses a modular structure composed by units for learning outcomes to describe the expected knowledge and skills acquired by trainees after the successful completion of the training courses. Within the system, a single syllabus for each level is defined, supported by a harmonised system for assessment and quality assurance, resulting in the same qualification being awarded independently from the country.Currently, the AM Qualification System covers Metal AM Qualifications for Operators, Designers, Supervisor, Inspector, Coordinator and Engineers.

The management of the International AM Qualification System is done by EWF.
