Education & Training

AFS exists in part to meet the career and educational needs of its members. Through CMI classes, in-plant training, the Education Solutions program, Metalcasting Career Center, reference and resource material, and various workshops, seminars and conferences, AFS helps drive the sustainability and growth of the metalcasting industry.

CMI training programs include classes held at AFS headquarters in Schaumburg, Ill., as well as in various locations across North America. Companies may also schedule in-plant training sessions for the convenience of their employees. Popular CMI classes also are available as instructor-led internet courses or self-paced on-demand courses.

AFS classes and workshops tackle specific industry segments and issues, providing tools and resources to attendees to apply in their own facility.

The AFS Career Center offers a specialized job search venue geared toward metal casters, both those looking for employees and those looking for work.
