Metallurgy Training to
Increase Your Success

These associations recommend our courses to their members:

Invest a few hours, and become more productive

Selecting the optimum metals for a product and controlling their properties is critical for your profitability and productivity.  And understanding the differences in properties between different alloys and how alloy composition and manufacturing processes affect metal properties is critical to selecting metals and controlling their properties.


Our metallurgy courses teach practical metallurgy concepts that will help you

  • Decrease the time to design products
  • Improve quality
  • Determine suppliers’ technical capabilities
  • Solve problems quickly
  • Have productive discussions with customers and suppliers


Developed by metallurgy experts, designed for non-metallurgists
Our courses were designed for design, manufacturing, and quality engineers.  Purchasing agents and salespeople have also found our courses to be helpful.
