How much training does it take to start using your Trotec laser?

You can get started after half a day

Trotec laser operation is easy to learn! As a general rule, half a day of training is enough to start laser engraving and cutting.

The control panel of the laser can be explained to anyone within 5 minutes, with the mechanical settings also able to be explained in a short time. The essential part of the training is the handling of the laser software. Its intuitive user interface means you can learn how to use it within a few hours. 

As soon as we set up your laser in your office or production area, you will receive the initial training, which lasts around half a day. The training will cover all basic laser and software functions. Following your training you can engrave and cut a large selection of impressive products using the laser.
