KIC-EIT Raw Materials and the EPMA have announced the first course dates for PM Life, a new training initiative aimed at helping to develop a skilled Powder Metallurgy workforce. Registration is now open for the 2018 course, which comprises five separate week-long courses and an optional internship at a Powder Metallurgy company.

PM Life is aimed at participants who hold at least a Master’s degree and have some knowledge on materials science, who already work in the PM field or wish to enter this field. Participants will have the choice to attend either the full programme or only those training sessions relevant to their field, and will also have the option of selecting modules over multiple years if attending all course dates in one year is not feasible.

Dr Lionel Aboussouan, Executive Director, EPMA, stated, “This is a great opportunity for degree students who have recently graduated, for people who are considering a career change and for new employees, to learn more about the powder metal process and the different facets the PM industry can offer.”

Registration for all 2018 PM Life course dates closes on March 15, but early booking is advised due to limited places.

The first year’s course dates are as follows:


Powder and Hard Materials
