EBM Trainings

Welcome to the starting point for you to begin your journey into the Additive Academy world. We offer a wide range of training sessions within the EBM field. By taking part in one or several sessions you will soon master your EBM system.


The Additive Academy offers various training sessions to the end users of the Arcam EBM System. Participation in the training program ensures a safe and efficient operation and maintenance.

Training is offered on different levels according to the end user personnel´s professional role and experience, e.g. Operators, Engineers and Maintenance personnel. It is done on the latest machine generation and software release. Where applicable documents and training material will include information about older machine families. Customized training sessions on older machine generations can be provided upon request. Please contact your Arcam representative or Arcam Academy directly.
