Manuela is a senior pattern cutter with 20 years’ experience in using Lectra, Assyst 2D CAD and Optitex, however before the course Manuela commented:

“The reason for taking this course and investing in new knowledge is because Gerber is the most required system on the market for pattern cutting and the recruitment agencies do not even look at my experience without having this course in my CV.”
