DDX EASYSTONE COURSE
This training course is addressed to stone operators who are willing to get updated and keep up with the new CNC technologies, and to anyone longing for a new qualification to start a new career.

CNC TECHNICIAN COURSE
This qualification course for CNC technicians is a specific training course for operators of numeric control machines which are used to process marble, granite, ceramics, and generally stone. The Donatoni Academy is committed to providing trainees all necessary knowledge required for them to become CNC machine operators, a role whose demand on the market has been on the rise.
The Rhinoceros course, either base or advanced, is addressed to anyone willing to learn 2D and 3D modelling. The course has a double purpose, i.e. to teach the trainees the basics of modelling and to make them independent in design.
It is a specific refresher course on the advanced functionalities of the Parametrix software and is geared towards operators who want to deepen their use of the software. In fact, the software installed in the machine has a wide range of possibilities and nuances whose usefulness and scope are not always grasped by the user.
