This advanced technical training program is offered in partnership with IFI, an independent trade and standards organization, 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 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 CFS designation.
Fastener Training Week covers timely topics — such as manufacturing processes, consensus standards and quality control taught by leading industry experts Salim Brahimi, IFI Director of Engineering and Technology, and Laurence Claus of NNi Training and Consulting. Participants will also tour manufacturing, secondary processes, and testing facilities.
The advanced technical program is a 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.
Class registration and more information is available online, with early-bird fees available until April 17. In addition, a $500 discount is available for Pac-West, NFDA, IFI, MWFA, NCFA, SFA, and AIM Prime members. Grants to attend the training are also being offered by the IFI.
