Whatever the industry, there are always new people entering for the first time and the stainless steel industry is no different. However, the BSSA recognises that there is a continual need for training and education to increase and strengthen the knowledge base of the stainless steel industry. With this in mind the BSSA offers different courses and seminars throughout the year at a variety of different locations. Courses include the popular ‘Introduction to Stainless Steel’ which can be used as a stepping stone to the ‘Stainless Steel Specialist Course’. Other seminars include ‘Fabrication Seminar’ which provide a thorough introduction to stainless steel and good design, fabrication and workshop practice.
This newly extended course provides an overview of the types of stainless steel available, with emphasis on structure, properties and end uses. An important aim is to provide up-to-date information to help with the selection of the most appropriate grade(s). A comprehensive technical manual is provided for each delegate.
They are available throughout the year and are held at different locations. more++
