Value chain creation committee

Key priorities of discussions and actions

First the committee will focus on the current state of additive manufacturing training in Québec, taking into consideration the various processing steps required to create a final product. The committee will examine, in the broadest sense, the various aspects of training, for example:

  • Workforce development programs:
    - workforce training measures
    - regional-based support to ensure suitable job training
  • Mandatory qualification
  • Skill recognition
  • Trainers

The committee will also include skill sets that one would expect to find in a training program such as design, use of materials and equipment, and project management.

The committee will take a look at possible collaborative arrangements involving Cégeps and universities, companies, and government research centres in order to provide training programs for students and professional development programs for job seekers looking to acquire the necessary knowledge to find employment in additive manufacturing.

It will be especially interesting to hear the committee’s conclusions regarding what information to disseminate and the appropriate target groups to reach in order to promote the development of additive manufacturing training programs in Québec. Québec businesses will then be able to tap in to a workforce trained in additive manufacturing.
