Title at company
Courses are held at TAT’s Training Center located at 106 Enterprise Street, St. Marys, PA, 15857
Course fee includes: Course registration, industry speaker, information handouts, a binder, 4 lunches, snacks and drinks for breaks and one optional after class dinner on the third day of classes. Each student will receive a certificate and class photo after course completion.
There is no cancellation once an attendee is registered. However, an attendee can be substituted by another attendee from the same company until 5 days prior to the beginning of the course.
The two available courses are 4 full days long: Course 1 is Tuesday to Friday from 8:30am to 5:30pm each day. Course 2 is Monday to Thursday, also from 8:30am to 5:30pm. Classes generally let out an hour or two earlier on the final day of each course as a courtesy to students who need to travel. They are intensive and highly focused hands-on courses. Course 1 is a prerequisite for Course 2.
While students are encouraged to take courses 1 & 2 back-to-back, they can also choose to return for course 2 at a later date if they cannot take both courses in the same period.
Class sizes are small to ensure a high instructor to attendee ratio. Students will be divided in groups of 2-3. Each group will be issued a computer to enter and tabulate the experimental data and later make graphs for presentations.
Students are encouraged to bring 15 samples of a part from their plant to sinter along with the experimental parts. They can take these parts back with them for reference. This is optional.
Fees do not include breakfast, dinners other than the third night, hotel, and travel expenses.
A list of local hotels will be provided upon request. Reservations are made directly by the students.
- Once a reservation is confirmed, the student's company will be issued an invoice that will be due upon receipt.
