Fastener Training Week

The Fastener Training Institute and the Industrial Fasteners Institute partner to present the week-long intensive version of FTI’s Certified Fastener Specialist advanced technical training program. This partnership is in response to requests by fastener distributors and manufacturers to offer the Certified Fastener Specialist seven-course training program in an accelerated 5-day version.

Fastener Training Week includes everything that a student would experience in the regular seven-course CFS training, but all on consecutive days. Students finish the program in five days instead of seven days spread out over several months. Plus members of endorsing fastener associations receive substantial discounts on registration fees.
