The Fastener Training Institute (FTI) has announced its next Fastener Training Week training course, which is scheduled for March 16 to 20 in Cleveland, OH. This advanced technical training program is offered in partnership with the Industrial Fasteners Institute and is for fastener distributors, manufacturers, and end users.
Fastener Training Week offers five intensive days of education and plant tours as part of the acclaimed FTI Certified Fastener Specialist (CFS) advanced technical training program.
After completing this industry training in a small group environment and passing a final exam, attendees are eligible for the Certified Fastener Specialist (CFS) designation.
Fastener Training Week will cover timely topics, such as manufacturing processes, consensus standards and quality control. These classes will be taught by industry experts: Salim Brahimi, IFI Director of Engineering Technology; Laurence Claus, NNi Training and Consulting; and John Medcalf, Peak Innovations Engineering.
Participants will also tour manufacturing, secondary processes and testing facilities, including Tensile Testing, Auto Bolt, and ND Industries.
The advanced technical program is also fit for professionals active in fastener sales, purchasing, manufacturing or quality assurance. Registration includes three full days and two half days of training, educational materials, continental breakfast and lunch, transportation for plant tours, certification of completion and eligibility for the CFS designation.
Additional Fastener Training Week programs will take place in Chicago August 17 to 21, and in Houston December 7 to 11. Professionals interested in obtaining their CFS designation through one-day classes can attend trainings offered in Chicago in March, April, May and June and August.
