Fastener Training Week Cleveland

Fastener Training Institute (FTI) is planning its next Fastener Training Week in Cleveland, OH, from April 8 to 12. The training will be held at Brighton-Best International.

“We are excited to welcome our next class of Fastener Training Week students,” shared Jo Morris, Marketing Director for Fastener Training Institute. “Knowledge builds confidence and leads to a safer industry. FTI is committed to providing continuous opportunities for all levels of fastener education,” she added.

Developed in 1998 with guidance from the International Fastener Institute, the Certified Fastener Specialist™ (CFS) advanced technical training program is the most noteworthy measurement of technical aptitude for fastener professionals. After Fastener Training Week, students who pass a final exam receive CFS designation.

The week will include hand-on demonstrations, learning labs, classroom instruction and plant tours, all in a team atmosphere taught by industry-expert instructors from Industrial Fasteners Institute, Laurence Claus and Salim Brahimi. FTI’s advanced technical training program is for fastener distributors, manufacturers, end-users as well as sales and quality assurance professionals.

Topics include:

  • Consensus standards organisations
  • IFI resources
  • Torque tension
  • QA systems & sampling plans
  • Thread technology and gage issues
  • Print reading & tolerances
  • Material specifications for steel fasteners
  • Understanding how fasteners fail
