Each of the 5 injection molding certification exams has a corresponding training package to help individuals prepare for their exam. Routsis’s Professional Certification Portals provide a convenient, cost-efficient way for injection molding companies to train, benchmark, and certify all their employees.

Certification for Injection Molding Professionals

Routsis Training’s globally recognized Professional Certification demonstrates a broad understanding of the injection molding industry. In order to attain certification, candidates must have a working knowledge of injection molding safety, machinery, processing, tooling, materials, quality, and current industry best practices. This certification track is ideal for machine operators, technicians, supervisors, engineers, managers — or anyone working in the injection molding industry.

Advanced Certification for Scientific Processors

Moving beyond the foundational concepts covered in the Injection Molding Professional exam, this certification level requires an advanced understanding of Scientific Molding. Participants must also demonstrate hands-on skills in order to attain certification. While the Advanced Certification is geared toward engineers and technicians, anyone involved with developing and optimizing Scientific Molding processes can benefit from this enhanced certification.

Certification for Injection Mold Setters

To attain this certification, injection mold setters must have a working knowledge of injection molding safety, die setting, robotics, drying, machinery, materials, purging, processing parameters, and tooling. Successful candidates must also demonstrate a solid understanding of the injection molding industry’s best practices. Anyone who performs or assists in mold changes should strongly consider taking this certification exam. In particular, every setup technician should be expected to understand the body of knowledge covered in the test.

Certification for Injection Molding Maintenance

Routsis Training’s globally recognized Injection Molding Maintenance Certification demonstrates a broad understanding of important maintenance considerations, concepts, and procedures. In order to attain certification, candidates must have a working knowledge of injection molding safety, robotics, drying, machinery, materials, purging, robotics, parameters, hydraulics, and maintenance — and demonstrate a solid understanding of current industry best practices. Maintenance technicians, managers, and engineers should consider taking this exam. Managers should offer this certification to benchmark their team — ensuring that maintenance personnel are confident, capable, and knowledgeable.

Certification for Injection Molding Quality

Delivering high-quality molded plastic parts to your customers is the main goal of any injection molding operation. In order to pass this exam, the candidate must demonstrate working knowledge of injection molding and quality assurance. Test topics include important safety concerns, the molding process, injection mold basics, plastics materials and drying, plastic part quality, mathematics, print reading, and the use of measuring tools for quality inspection. Quality inspectors, technicians, managers, and engineers should take this certification exam. Quality managers should strongly consider offering this certification as a means of benchmarking their personnel — ensuring they have a confident and capable quality assurance team.
