Excellence Committee

This large-scale project is based on an innovative online programme and support created by Jean-Pierre Cauchois, President of Composites Expert. It is managed and supervised by a committee of excellence, composed of specialists from the industrial world (raw material producers and processors), research and teaching. These eminent specialists represent the different industrial sectors in the composites sector. Their expertise and their mastery of contraints and needs, sometimes specific, is an asset for "e-learning Composites Academy" project.

Chairman of Excellence Committee

Michel Glotin

• Director Materials Science Arkema
• Former President GFP (French Polymer Group)

" Composites are making their revolution towards Industry 4.0, the growth in volumes and the penetration of composite materials in ever more technical and advanced applications make it essential to train new employees but also to increase the skills of teams at all levels already active in this industry... What I found most exciting about the E-Learning Composites Academy training is that it is adapted to meet the needs of each level, whether it is the production operator, the technician who wants to progress in their profession or the design engineer who has to choose the best process to mass-produce a particular part. It is also the unique combination for E-learning between theoretical and conceptual aspects and "Practical Work" that allows a good understanding of the different processes used to produce composite parts. Like all my colleagues on the Excellence Committee, from large industrial groups, SMEs, academia and research, I am particularly proud and happy to support this initiative. "

François TROCHU

Professor Polytechnic Montreal Consulting Engineer (L3C) CANADA

" Composites Expert has created a new kind of training, with practical demonstrations on the manufacture of composites by injection. In a very ingenious way thanks to simple and lightweight devices, it is possible for the learner to experiment while being guided by advanced concepts and by an easy-to-use software. Congratulations to Composites Academy for not having hesitated to innovate and facilitate learning these technologies by combining theory and practice. "
