Stamping Die Certificate Program

The Stamping Die Certificate Program is an intensive and comprehensive training and recognition program designed to develop the knowledge skill set relating to your work specialty: stamping dies. Earning a stamping die certificate is not easy. First, participants sit for a pre-exam to pinpoint challenge areas. Then use the next three days of intensive stamping die training to address these challenge areas. On the last day, take a voluntary 50 question final exam that, when passed, qualifies you to receive your SME Stamping Die Certificate.
