These associations recommend our courses to their members:

Learn metallurgy, at your convenience and pace

Our metallurgy courses deliver the practical knowledge you need to:

  • Engineer and optimize metals and processes to build better products
  • Solve and prevent design, manufacturing, and supplier problems
  • 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.


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.


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.

Learn the metallurgy of how metal strength is modified by alloying, cold-working, and heat treating.
In this webinar you will learn about the corrosion of metals and how to prevent corrosion from occurring.
Learn about the different types of steel alloys and the metallurgical reasons for their different properties.
Learn the metallurgy of carbon and low-alloy steels and their common heat treatments.
Learn techniques & steps to evaluate components that fractured, corroded, or have poor quality.
Attend our May 21 webinar to ask questions about and hear answers to real-world metallurgy problems.
Learn about precipitation strengthening heat treating and the effects on alloy microstructure and strength.
Learn steel microstructures, their influence on properties, and how they are modified during heating/cooling.
Learn about the metallurgy of steel quenching and tempering, martempering, and austempering.
