ACT First to Use Augmented Reality to Deliver Composites Training

The COVID-19 global pandemic has forced many businesses to find new ways of delivering their goods and services. For London’s Advanced Composites Training (ACT), that meant developing new digital technology to provide the top-quality instruction that has made the company a global leader in composites training since 1996.

ACT’s recently-launched augmented reality training uses the Microsoft HoloLens2 and software developed by New Brunswick’s Kognitiv Spark to offer live courses to students anywhere in the world.
ACT founder, Wilson Boynton, believes his company is the first to use augmented reality to deliver intensive composites technology training for the aerospace, aviation, automotive, marine and renewable energy industries.
Composites are fiber-based materials – like carbon fiber – used in the construction of things like airplanes, ships, cars, and wind turbine blades. As the only privately-owned Canadian composites training institute exceeding both Transport Canada and American Federal Aviation Administration standards, ACT works with both civilian and military technicians from more than 39 countries.

ACT offers 17 courses covering all aspects of composites manufacturing and structural repair technologies. Technicians typically travel to London for intense on-site training, which combines a mix of theory and hands-on instruction.
