Default Composites related class and training courses

You're welcome to post the ones that you know. Here are some in and around Southern California.

Cerritos College - This one probably has the most extensive training program when it comes to composites and plastics in general.

OCROP - Fiberglass and Plastics taught by J. McNear. I am actually attending this class twice a week just to gain any additional knowledge that I can. James is a great instructor with over 20 years of experience. He also builds his own race cars and is an avid weekend racer. This course is provided by Orange County ROP program and is open to all adults as well.

It is CCROP and it is located in Garden Grove near Beach Blvd. and Katella. The classes are free and on Tuesday and Thursday nights from 6 to 9:30 PM.

For more information (714) 663-6546 and also for signing up too.

There's also a Rop Fiberglass and Plastics program down in the San Diego in the Spring Valley area: Tom McGrath (619) 463-5551.

There's a SAMPE composites trade show coming to the San Diego in Nov., try www.sampe.org for more information.

For Cerritos site: www.mfgskills.com

There's some design and composites programs (set up from a worldly instructor, Bob Shurman, from the pasadena Art Center) at a new Irvine college but I'm planning to stop by there after my racing season is over to check them out.

If you are interested in Injection molding and those types of molds programs, there's a program out at Riverside College area.

Sorry, but we are located in So. Calif area and you are in Chicago.

Try looking at the Sampe site and maybe Google "fiberglass / composites boat building" and see if anything pops up for you. I know there is shows and the like in Florida and you just might have to bite the bullet and travel.

Knowledge isn't cheap.
