PM Life is a training programme to help develop the future of Powder Metallurgy and provide a comprehensive training course to those looking for a related career.

PM Life is aimed at professionals, either working in companies or in universities, university graduates and PhD students, and at unemployed individuals with an interest in PM.

The participants can pick their specific module to improve their knowledge in their preferred sector but may also attend more weeks in the programme to learn about other fields of the PM industry.

Each week is hosted in a different venue across Europe providing a wide range of experience and contacts within the powder metallurgy industry. During the training module, much time is devoted to lab sessions, including real lab experiences, special workshops, lab visits and plant visits to PM companies nearby whose activity is related to the subject of the week. Due to the relatively small size of the groups, the interaction and networking among trainees and trainers is intense and fruitful.

At the end of each module there is a short exam after which a certificate will be presented.

PM Life also offers an optional three weeks internship either in a factory or in a university, to practice what has been discussed during the course in a working environment.

PM Life will help provide the knowledge and experience needed to help you take the next step in your career!
