Improving professional knowledge by understanding the principles of metallurgy provides participants with a set of valuable skills that can be applied in various industrial sections. Regardless of the field of work, having a fundamental knowledge of metallurgy can contribute to better decision-making, problem-solving, and collaboration with metallurgical experts.

Metallurgy for the Non-Metallurgist is a course designed to provide individuals with a non-metallurgical background a basic understanding of metallurgy, the study of metals and their properties. This course aims to bridge the knowledge gap and familiarize participants with fundamental concepts and principles of metallurgy, enabling them to make informed decisions and effectively collaborate with metallurgical professionals.

The course will also provide an overview of metals and alloys and relates these to the mechanical and physical characteristics of metals. Moreover, the training course will contain discussions on ferrous alloys (plain and alloy steels, stainless steels, and cast irons) and non-ferrous alloys, including corrosive and high-temperature applications, such as nickel-based alloys.

The course consists of 12 hours of live sessions with the instructor. All training content is provided through your EngineeringTrainer account. After the course, you maintain 1-year unlimited access to the course, including any new course material. This allows you to perform modules again should you need to refresh your knowledge.

Who should attend this course

This course is designed for a wide range of individuals who may benefit from understanding the basic principles and concepts of metallurgy. Starting engineers can use this course as a foundational resource to understand the principles of metallurgy.

Prerequisites:
While this course on Metallurgy for Non-Metallurgists is designed to be accessible for individuals without prior knowledge or experience in metallurgy, having a basic understanding of materials science can be helpful.

Level: Beginner


Live sessions

This course consists of instructor-led group sessions, these group sessions can be Virtual or Onsite. During these sessions participants can ask questions to the instructor which are discussed, as well as questions submitted beforehand in the learning portal.

After each live session used slides and exercise documents are made available to participants on the learning portal. Please note that for privacy reasons no recordings of the live sessions are made or provided. You receive 1-year unlimited access to the online course material. This allows you to watch content again if this is beneficial for your daily work activities and benefit from any material updates.

The live sessions are scheduled together with the customer and are private for their team only. 

Typically the training course would be scheduled as:

  • Virtual: 4 sessions of 3 hours each

  • Onsite: 2 days of 6 hours

After the course participants receive 1-year unlimited access to the slides and exercise documents used within the sessions via the learning portal. This allows them to review material when required to refresh their knowledge for daily work activities.

A personal digital certificate will be made available to each participant upon full attendance.
