100% Success Rate on FTA’s Gerber Courses

As with all industries technology is constantly evolving and changing the way we work. In terms of fashion production the requirement for CAD pattern cutters has rapidly increased within the industry. In order to keep up with the demand manual pattern cutters need to upskill and adapt the way that they work to incorporate these new technologies.
