CPD, Training & Talks

Promoting the use of lasers in manufacture, design, architecture and education

How learning more about lasers can support your organisation

We always want to promote the use of lasers and encourage people into our industry. We are available to support your organisation or educational establishment in a number of ways.

RIBA Accredited

We are accredited by RIBA to provide CPD in the form of a 1 hour seminar on our specialist subject Laser Cutting and Laser Engraving. We run courses up and down the country every six weeks or so and everyone is welcome but if you practice has 5 or more people who are interested then we can arrange a date and deliver the seminar at your premises just for you. If you would like to see the latest available courses please see below or if you have a question or would like to book a course for 5 or more people at your premises then please email

Schools and Colleges

We really love to promote laser cutting and laser engraving and think not enough young people are encouraged to consider manufacturing as a career choice – particularly girls. We all hear about STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) but what about really opening this up to STEAM to include A (Arts). There are huge overlaps in skills between these disciplines and creativity can be a really big part of manufacturing.

If your school or college would be interested in a short careers talk from Jane Robinson or you have students who could benefit from learning more about the practical and industrial applications of laser cutting and laser engraving then please email and we will try our best to help.
