It’s a wrap on Fastener Training Week in Chicago 2023. The class was possible thanks to instructors Laurence Claus, Carmen Vertullo, and John Medcalf; plant tour sponsors SWD, Inc. and Semblex; industry and networking host Mid-West Fastener Association; sustaining sponsor Würth Industries North America; ongoing partner Industrial Fasteners Institute; and group lessons assistant Harry Dickerson.
Fastener Training Week is an intensive five days of advanced fastener training for seasoned fastener professionals. “It is an investment in people. Providing accelerated growth in fastener knowledge and confidence and is a win-win for companies and employees,” said Jo Morris, Marketing Director, Fastener Training Institute.
Students who took part in the recent session in Chicago, IL, shared thoughts about the week:
“Fastener Training Week was an absolutely eye-opening experience! The sheer amount of engineering consideration that goes into an overlooked everyday item is absolutely astounding. Laurence, John, Carmen and Jo were amazing hosts and instructors that bring life into an otherwise dry subject area. Their responsiveness and attention to detail was second to none. I have since recommended this course to other coworkers and will continue to do so. Overall, it was an awesome experience!”
“I would recommend Fastener Training Week for anyone in the industry to jump on board on a journey through the best learning opportunity in fasteners on all fronts for a better understanding of the ins and outs of fasteners.”
“I was able to put the knowledge to use my very first day back in El Paso. A customer came in with broken bolts, and I felt more ready than ever to help him!”
The next Fastener Training Week will be held in Los Angeles, CA on December 4 – 8 at the Holiday Inn La Mirada.
