Continuous Professional Development

The world of digital manufacturing can be daunting, but it needn’t be.

Digital manufacturing is all about using data to improve output, processes, and productivity. Companies and workforces of all sizes from across the manufacturing world are benefiting from data-driven manufacturing.

The National Manufacturing Institute Scotland’s CPD programme of courses will give you and your colleagues the skills and knowledge to tackle and embrace the concept while also realising the tangible benefits.

Our continuous professional development (CPD) programme, funded through Scottish Research Partnership in Engineering, is being developed to meet the needs of people and manufacturing businesses throughout the country regardless of specialism.

We tailor our courses to suit the varying needs of different people within a manufacturing environment and cover the essentials as well as key topics such as cyber security, supply chain development, operational excellence, artificial intelligence, automation, visualisation and strategy development.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we have had to pause our face-to-face courses. Instead, we are working on a new virtual programme with details coming soon.
