Metallurgy courses, at your convenience and pace
Interested in learning about metallurgy? As the leader in online, on-demand metallurgy training, our expert-created courses deliver the practical metallurgy knowledge you need to:
- Engineer and optimize metals and processes
- Solve and prevent problems
- Ask suppliers better questions
Our courses were designed for non-metallurgists such as design, manufacturing, and quality engineers. Also, purchasing agents and salespeople have found our courses helpful for discussions with suppliers and engineers.
Materials can make or break a products’ success. If you choose the wrong materials to bring your idea to market, you risk poor product performance or reliability and high costs.
Our goal is to make metallurgy knowledge accessible to EVERYONE involved in all aspects of the product life cycle (design, manufacturing, sourcing, sales, and failure analysis).
Invest 4 hours in yourself, and make your job easier.
Why Do You Need These Courses?
Empowerment. We’re committed to sharing our knowledge and product design experience to empower you to confidently make well-informed design, manufacturing, and supplier decisions.
Metals Mastery. If your products use metal of any kind, you need to understand metallurgy – how metals behave, factors that affect metal strength, and how to modify metals to achieve desired mechanical properties.
As the leader in online, in-demand metallurgy training, our expert-created courses deliver the practical metallurgy knowledge you need to:
- Engineer and optimize metals and processes to build better products
- Solve and prevent metallurgy problems, especially product failures
- Ask suppliers better metallurgy questions to ensure support
“As plant manager I oversee several operations that include steel heat treating and laser welding. However, my background was in the construction materials industry. Principles of Metallurgy gave me the knowledge to have meaningful discussions with my engineers and be able to ask them better questions.”
Tom Parkman, Plant Manager, Simonds International.
