Training European Adhesive Bonder

Starting in 2020 you can register for the certified training to become a glue craftswoman/glue craftsman. This course will be organised for the first time in Belgium from 27 to 31 January 2020, in collaboration with the Lijmacademie and Fraunhofer IFAM.

What to expect?

In this course you will be immersed in the world of adhesive technology for a week. After a review of the basic concepts, we will show you the different types of adhesives and possible surface treatments. You will also receive an introduction to production techniques and of course we also work on safety and the environment. The course is a mix of theory and practice, supervised by experts in adhesive technology. If you successfully complete the course, you will be able to carry out independent adhesive work in a technically responsible manner as a true craftsman or woman.

At the end of this fascinating week, and upon successful completion of the exam, you will receive the diploma "European Adhesive Bonder".
