Move Yourself Forward – Enhance Your Expertise – Meet the Experts

AFS offers a number of unique filtration and separations training short courses. Educational opportunities on these topics are difficult to find, especially with the level of expertise that you will receive here. Leading experts from the filtration and separations industry are instructing the courses. Upon completion, attendees receive certificates of completion and earn CEU credit.

Product familiarization and technical training of new and existing filtration products is an integral and essential part of doing business. An investment in knowledge is a key ingredient in understanding a customer's business and being able to recommend cost-effective system solutions.

Understanding the damaging role that contamination plays in system failure and machine downtime is typically one of the many topics covered as well as correct filter sizing and understanding filter media types and uses.
