PwC’s Skills for Australia initiative, which has joined with the PIAA to review print industry training, has opened an online survey to gather feedback on the state of the 3D printing industry.

“This project investigates the broader industry needs for 3D printing, in addition to reviewing the current 3D printing units and skill set in the Printing and Graphic Arts Training Package,” says Claudia Cuskelly, senior associate at PwC Australia.

“We want to hear from a diverse audience, both in printing and other industries, who are using 3D printing, including: employers, industry representatives, peak bodies/associations, trainers or training providers, subject matter experts, recruiters and anyone with interest or expertise in this field. We’re looking to gather as much industry feedback as possible.”

The survey will be open until Monday 2nd April, 2018 and the results will be used to create training products that provide the best employment outcomes for learners and for industry.

The Printing and Graphic Arts Industry Reference Committee (IRC), in conjunction with PwC’s Skills for Australia initiative, last week released a 48-page draft of its Industry Skills Forecast and Proposed Schedule of Work (ISFPSW) review, which aims to “refocus the discussion about the skills and training needed in the industry.”

The study noted that companies including HP and Fuji Xerox are developing 3D hardware and software in partnership with firms for implementation over the next 12 months.
