There is soooo much to know about fasteners! How do we sort the critical information from the esoteric from the trivia?

The Industrial Fasteners Institute has published a booklet called:

“The Critical Fastener Facts Every Fastener Supplier and User Should Know”

It is written in Q & A format.

We will use this booklet as the basis for this webinar, examining as many of the 90 questions in detail as time permits.
We will go well beyond the answers – we will show you how to get to the answers with authoritative resources and discuss why knowing the answer is important.

This booklet was authored by Joe Greenslade, the past Director of Engineering Technology at the Industrial Fasteners Institute, now retired from the fastener industry.
If you know Joe, you know he was our industry’s most prolific provider of fastener technical knowledge.
If you do not know Joe, this is a chance for you to capture a piece of his amazing legacy.

Each attendee will be given a PDF version of “The Critical Fastener Facts Every Fastener Supplier and User Should Know”.

This is a technical program but it is appropriate for ALL fastener industry personnel at all levels of technical knowledge and experience.

Managers will gain a valuable resource for knowing how to know who knows what in their work force.

All attendees will receive 90 minutes of the most important fastener training you can get in this industry.

We will not be able to cover all 90 questions in the webinar, but we will allow 30 minutes of Q&A at the end so you can ask for any question in the book – or any other fastener question you may have – to be reviewed.
