Laser training for engineering students, newly hired technical personnel or business managers with partly technical functions can be organized in two levels: 1. Survey Level which avoids expert jargon, complete physical explanations and details, but provides safe guidelines to select the best laser for a given task, evaluate alternatives, organize the implementation and understand the economically decisive trends. 2. Expert Level for specialized manufacturing applications, design of systems, pushing the limits of application technology and in-depth strategic planning. Examples of survey level for Laser Precision Microfabrication are presented, with emphasis on local Singaporean conditions.
