Certified Training of SDC and AATCC

SGS provides certified training – on behalf of the Society of Dyers and Colorists (SDC) and the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists (AATCC) – that improves your employees’ technical competency.

Our SDC training relates to the society’s certificated color management training program, and to international testing standards and methods (e.g. ISO). It is suitable for employees involved in the efficient control and communication of color, including specifiers, designers, buyers, fabric and garment makers, garment technologists and dyers. Successful attendees are trained to adopt best practice and use the same vocabulary.

We are also approved to provide certificated AATCC training. Course attendees gain a thorough understanding of the AATCC’s testing standards, which apply to the market in the United States of America. Those passing the course are able to demonstrate technical competence while mastering quality assurance roles and conducting tests in a testing laboratory.

In addition, we provide seminars and training sessions that cover new products, technological advances and industry and market trends. For the American market, we also offer certificated training on behalf of ASTM International (the organization formerly known as the American Society for Testing and Materials).

Contact SGS now to find out how our SDC and AATCC certified training can develop your employees’ technical skills.
