Skill Building for All Levels

Whether you’re looking to advance existing skills or learn new ones, OriginLabs’ workshops will help propel your project forward. These no-cost, introductory level courses don’t require any previous knowledge or experience and give you the opportunity to get hands-on experience with a project-based approach to learning. Open to all, no University affiliation necessary to participate.

RAAMP Series

With gracious support from Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC), we are excited to offer the free Realizing Automated and Advanced Manufacturing Processes (RAAMP) workshops that cover advanced manufacturing technologies and techniques in automation, additive manufacturing, and smart factory environments.

RAAMP workshops will be held on Saturdays from 10 am – 3 pm, require no prior experience, and are free to attend!

Industry 4.0 Series

We are proud to offer the Technical Training for Industry 4.0 workshop series, funded by a Congressionally Funded Community Projects grant through the U.S. Department of Education. This workshop series will help regional manufacturers modernize their production capabilities and address the shortage of skilled labor by emphasizing specific software/hardware workflows and key concepts of advanced manufacturing.


Industry 4.0 workshops will be held on Thursdays from 5:30 – 7:30 pm, require no prior experience, and are free to attend!
