AFS exists in part to meet the career and educational needs of its members. Through Institute 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.
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. E-learning is the latest addition to the education and training options offered by the Institute. These modules can be accessed through a full subscription to all modules, or individually module to module.
AFS classes and workshops tackle specific industry segments and issues, providing tools and resources to attendees to apply in their own facility.
