The Fastener Training Institute (FTI) announced its first 2022 Fastener Training Week, in-person training class, which is scheduled February 21-25 at the Industrial Fasteners Institute (IFI) near Cleveland, OH.
This advanced technical training program is offered in partnership with IFI 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 Certified Fastener Specialist (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 with 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.
