Local Courses
There are NADCA education and training chapters located throughout the U.S., Canada and Mexico. Chapters are an extension of NADCA's education and training, and most offer selected NADCA national courses and programs locally . . . thus, expanding the technology transfer opportunities for every die caster. Chapters also offer a range of other technological and operational education programs specifically selected and tailored to the needs of die casters and suppliers in their chapter areas.

In-Plant Programs
All NADCA programs, courses and installations can be brought to the worksite for presentation. The cost in savings and scheduling advantages can be substantial!

In-House Programs
NADCA is now offering the "In-House Training Program for Operators and Technicians!" The In-House approach responds to the need of die casters to have control of the schedule, content and cost of training. It is a multi-module program that is highly cost-effective.

    Virtual Reality To Advance Understanding and 06/09/2020 Virtual Reality (VR) has the power to immerse the user in an environment; be it a far off world or a factory floor. This immersion allows the user to feel like they are actually there, while at the same time keeping them safe from any potential hazards. A user can see inside a blast furnace or change process settings to understand how things work. This presentation will talk about different ways VR can be used to improve understanding of the process. Add to Calendar
