The automotive industry is one of the largest and most important customers ofmodern plastic and composite materials . Today, individual car manufacturers can choosefrom a large number of plastic materials for interiors, where the emphasis is on softness,durability and colourfastness, as well as for exteriors with the main requirements fordurability, rigidity or toughness. At the same time, technologies for plastics processing andrelated processes, such as mould design and production, are being developed. That is why itis very important to have comprehensive training that will help workers in this sectorto develop their knowledge .
