I.A Technical has just announced the launch of five individual distance learning courses, catering to the intimate apparel industry and based on the two day courses available at the Innovation Centre in Leicester. The pattern cutting and grading courses are available in Core Bra, Plus Fit Bra, Swim and Sportswear, Bodies and Briefs, and Sports Bra.
Industry professionals and students can download the technical development courses and study over their chosen timetable, with sections covering the specialised pattern cutting, size grading, types of fabrics and components suitable for the product, its manufacturing process and how it should fit. Online tutorials are also available – more information can be found on I.A Technical’s website.
