Metallurgy courses, at your convenience and pace

Metallurgy courses are online, on-demand
Access any course when you want over the 3-month registration period, and learn as much as you want at one time.  Our courses deliver the practical knowledge you need to:

  • Engineer and optimize metals and processes to build better products
  • Solve and prevent problems, especially product and manufacturing failures
  • Ask suppliers better questions to determine their technical capabilities


Developed by metallurgy experts, designed for non-metallurgists
Our courses were designed for design, manufacturing, and quality engineers. Also, purchasing agents and salespeople have found our courses helpful for discussions with suppliers and engineers.


Invest a few hours in yourself, and make your job easier
You’ll gain knowledge that will empower you to confidently make design, manufacturing, and supplier decisions. Click any of the courses below for details about the course.
