ASTM International has partnered with Tinius Olsen to provide you with a best-in-class learning experience. This training course is a series of educational interactive training sessions where the attendees will gain hands-on experience. You will be able to describe principles, techniques and mechanical properties in respect to hardness testing as well as demonstrate proper use of ASTM Test Methods. Practical and written examinations will be conducted during the course.
The following course subjects will be presented, and following completion, all attendees will demonstrate basic understanding of these core items in regards to Rockwell, Brinell and Knoop-Vickers hardness testing, utilizing industry guidelines and applicable ASTM standards (E10, E18, E92 and E384)
By the end of this course you will be able to:
This course is designed to examine the benefits of standards used with the various hardness testing platforms. Training will be targeted at a level for those currently in the mechanical testing arena as well as students involved in material science/engineering programs wishing for hands-on approach from industry experts.
Registration 9:30am-10:00am on the first day of class.
Class 10:00am-3:00pm EDT. There will be breaks included.
ASTM is recognized by the International Association of Continuing Education and Training (IACET) as an Authorized Provider of Continuing Education Units (CEUs), under the ANSI/IACET 1-2013 Standard, for good practices and quality continuing education and training programs.
