What Metalcasters are Saying about AFS Institute Foundry E-Learning

The AFS Foundry E-Learning program has helped us dramatically shorten the learning curve for supervisors and engineers new to the foundry industry. It's also a good refresher and reference for those with more experience. The modules are a great way to supplement and fill in the gaps of in-house training practices.
