RRC launches composites training centre

October 26, 2020

Red River College is launching the Advanced Forming Training Centre for training students in composites using technology from the National Research Council of Canada (NRC). RRC says that their centre places them at the forefront of Canada’s aircraft component industry, which uses composites to make aircrafts lighter and more fuel efficient. The centre will also be a composite training hub for businesses. “We’re honoured to now be home to advanced composite forming systems developed by the NRC,” says RRC president Fred Meier. “RRC has long been at the forefront of innovation in the aerospace and manufacturing sectors, and working with partners like the National Research Council only strengthens what we do and ensures the widest audience possible will benefit from our state-of-the-art facilities and expertise.” RRC (MB)
