Scientific SkillSet™ Series

The Scientific SkillSet™ Series is a unique learning experience that combines detailed, step-by-step online instruction with practical hands-on labs and worksheets.

Each of the twenty-six course/worksheet combinations focuses on developing important processing-related skills that translate directly to troubleshooting, optimizing and documenting any injection molding process.

This exclusive training approach allows companies to perform the same type of classroom learning found in popular seminars in the comfort of their own production environment. Your employees will learn how to setup a repeatable process and troubleshoot effectively through Scientific Molding.

Each unique training course is a blend of the following components:

  • BACKGROUND:
    Your technicians understand the goal of each Scientific SkillSet™
  • PURPOSE:
    Technicians learn specifically how each Scientific SkillSet™ applies to their job
  • EQUIPMENT:
    Items are detailed to ensure techs have the tools they need to succeed
  • PROCEDURE:
    Each step is demonstrated so your techs can proceed with confidence
  • WORKSHEET:
    Contains all the information your techs need to succeed with each SkillSet™

Train On Your Computer, Tablet or Smartphone

Our Scientific SkillSet™ online courses are cross-platform and are compatible with most modern web browsers and popular handheld devices, such as tablets and smartphones. This provides exceptional flexibility, allowing technicians to train at their own pace on the production floor – without costly trainers or consultants.
