48 THE DISTRIBUTOR’S LINK Jo Morris Marketing Director, Fastener Training Institute ® FASTENER TRAINING INSTITUTE ® 5318 East 2nd Street #325, Long Beach, CA 90803 TEL 562-473-5373 FAX 661-449-3232 EMAIL WEB IS IT TIME TO OUTSOURCE TRAINING? Short answer…Yes! And what are you waiting for? For many reading this article, your core business function is to manufacture, distribute or use fasteners. Even with highly technical and experienced staff, training is not your core purpose and many times a distraction or abandoned endeavor. The benefits of training are undisputable, especially now when hiring and maintaining employees is challenging. Research shows that productive and committed employees stick with the company who invested in training. Don’t let training be your abandoned endeavor. In addition to our scheduled course offerings for the public, the Fastener Training Institute also offers Corporate Training Agreements, on-site customized classes, and extensive virtual training sessions. Our Corporate Training Agreements are unique for each company, or individual, and include all training platforms to meet your needs. Please contact Jo Morris at to evaluate your requirements and a custom quote. In November, we return to the Los Angeles area to present Fastener Training Week, sponsored by Optimas. Hosted by the Pacific West Fastener Association, Laurence Claus (President of NNi Training & Consulting) and Salim Brahimi (Director of Engineering Technology for the Industrial Fasteners Institute (IFI)) will instruct the five intensive days of education and plant tours as part of the acclaimed Certified Fastener Specialist advanced technical training program. After completing this accelerated industry training and passing a final exam, attendees are eligible for the CFS designation. Also returning to Los Angeles are the single-day CFS classes instructed by Rob LaPointe with AIM Testing Lab. Students unable to attend the full week-long class may participate one class at a time over the course of a year to fulfill their required course work. Classes include TECHNICAL ARTICLE Fastener Specifications and Terminology, Understanding the Bolted Joint, Dimensional and Material Specifications and Fastener Quality Assurance. Both the weeklong and single day classes will include a tour of a manufacturing facility and testing lab. The Fastener Training Institute, already known for high content fastener product and technical courses, will be expanding the curriculum in 2023 to include virtual classes instructed in Spanish. The first courses will cover Material Grades and Property Classes, Platings and Coatings, and Fastener Standards. Please visit our website and join our newsletter to learn more about training classes in Spanish. FTI is expanding and looking for instructors… All the classes at the Fastener Training Institute are developed and instructed by fastener industry experts.
