The MPIF has introduced a new course covering powder metallurgy and particulate materials processing that can be undertaken by the student in their own time.

The Self-Study Course contains 30 pre-recorded videos averaging 60 minutes each that will be available to the student for six months from the date of purchase.

 According to the MPIF, the US$1,400 course provides a broad introduction to the fundamental principles of powder metallurgy and basic science and engineering as it relates to the technology. It covers practical applications of metal and alloy behavior, various manufacturing processes, and management objectives.

It is suitable for materials engineers and technologists, mechanical, industrial, manufacturing, process, and aerospace engineers, quality assurance engineers and technicians, managers and overseers of powder metallurgy organizations.

When the course is combined with one year of APMI Membership students will have the opportunity to sit for the Powder Metallurgy Technologist Certification (PMT) examination for free within 18 months of starting the course, the MPIF said.
