Where Do You Think You're Going?
Nowhere! Unless you get back in school! And the only class we recommend is the STLE Metalworking Fluid Management Certificate Course. Over the years, we have attended, reported, reviewed, criticized, and recommended this class to our readers. Every year, new managers and engineers enter into the field of Metalworking Fluids. In the 1990's there was virtually no formal education offered in Metalworking Fluid Management anywhere until STLE answered the call. The start was a bit rough in places, but the course has been refined over the years and STLE now has true expertise in providing this outstanding Certificate Program to the industry. This course, and Jerry Byers' book, are your first two steps in learning the business. These two steps will provide you with enough information to function adequately as an MWF Manager in your plant. From there, you can determine your further educational needs. It's a 2 1/2 day course, so start planning early to attend.
Location: The Engineering Society of Detroit, Southfield, Michigan
Date/Time: March 10-12, 2015 (2 ½ day course)
