We are proud to offer three different education tracks and a course in non-destructive inspection and testing (NDI/NDT) to engineers, inspectors, fabricators, technicians, mechanics, and anyone else involved in the design, manufacture, repair and inspection of advanced composite structures.
Engineering and Design
Abaris engineering and design courses are considered the best “real world” short courses available to the composites industry. These courses are aerospace centric but apply to all industries and are very hands-on in nature. Each course is 5-days in duration, and they build sequentially from one course to the next. There are two primary tracks: Engineering Structures (ES) and Engineering Repair (ER). There is minimal crossover (except the ER-3/ES-4 course) between tracks. We have had engineering students attend all the courses to best maximize their career competencies. The courses are listed in order, with each course prerequisite to the next. The links take you to the full description for each course.
Engineering Structures (ES) Track Courses:
Engineering Repair (ER) Track Courses:
Engineering Materials and Process (EM) Course:
Our manufacturing courses are designed to provide students with a well-rounded education in composite materials, processes, methods, and techniques utilized across all composite manufacturing industries. Each course is 5-days in duration and all start with the curricula presented in the M-1/R-1 prerequisite course. All these courses are hands-on in nature and a great deal of time is spent in the lab learning key tricks and time saving methodologies. These courses can be taken out of sequence after the prerequisite has been met. Some of the Manufacturing courses (M) crossover to the Repair (R) track. The embedded links below take you to the full description for each course.
Manufacturing Track Courses:
The Abaris composite repair courses have evolved along with the industry since we began teaching them in 1983. Today’s courses are designed to provide our students with the latest knowledge and tactile skills needed to approach any structural composite repair with confidence and competence. Each course is 5-days in duration and the first three start with the curricula presented in the M-1/R-1 prerequisite course and run sequentially. All these courses are hands-on in nature and a great deal of time is spent in the lab doing composite repairs to actual composite parts and panels. The embedded links below take you to the full description for each course.
Repair Track Courses:
Manufacturing (M) and Repair (R) Crossover Courses:
Windblade Repair Track:
R-GWO: Certified GWO Windblade Repair
Nondestructive Inspection (NDI)
Our 5-Day NDI course is designed for inspectors, technician, engineers, or anybody else tasked with identifying and quantifying defects in new or damaged composite panels using the latest equipment, methods, and techniques. The course is very “hands-on” in nature, and quite busy. The instruction is performed by an ASNT certified Level III engineer and is flexible to adapting to the students needs.
