Elastomer Technology Certificate

Elastomers are any rubbery material that is capable of bouncing back to its original shape after being stretched. You’ll often see them used in seals, adhesives and molded flexible parts. Whether it’s for shoe soles or insulating elements, the importance of rubber products in our world can’t be understated. In fact, global revenue is expected to rise in the US to $56 billion by 2020.

More than 700,000 people work in plastics and rubber products manufacturing, and that number is increasing every day. Obtaining an Elastomer Technology Certificate will benefit anyone working with the handling, manufacturing and designing of synthetic rubbers. You’ll learn about the latest technologies and advancements in this field, cost-saving strategies and ways to improve your designs.

Earn the certificate in as little as 18 months by attending nine or more days of related courses that will improve your value in the workplace and opportunity for future advancement.
