  "This shouldn’t be missed.  I would like to say what a great experience this was for me being  selected for the scholarship and attending . I enjoyed the training with experts and captains of this industry. These instructors took the time to try to answer every question asked and make the effort to help each and every  student fully understand the material. I would have never been able to afford this class without the awarded scholarship and sponsorship of my employer. L.A., Cleveland, or Chicago, Fastener Training Institute will put in every effort to make sure you walk away a (C.F.S.) Certified Fastener Specialist. The field trip/plant tours allowed time to interact and get firsthand experience in manufacturing, secondary processes, and lab testing. I highly recommend this class.

 

Thanks to all that helped make it all possible:

 

Vickie K. Lester (National Fastener Distributors Association)

Beth VanZandt (Fastener Training Institute)

Diane Kasper (Head of H.R. Fast-Rite International)

 

Thank you again from your newest CFS."

"During the year that I have been in the fastener industry I have been introduced to many of the topics. However during the training week I was able to learn more about the details and specifics. One of the subjects that I was able to absorb the most was Fastener standards, specially IFI resources. While in class I learned how to use the IFI Inch Standards book and had the opportunity to practice more while taking the final exam. I know this is a tool that I will be using in purchasing processes and that will allow me to be able to communicate more efficiently with suppliers and internal customers.

 

I also really liked the visit to SGS MSi. It was very interesting to learn about the procedures and systems involved in failure analysis investigation which I had heard about before but had not actually seen."
