World Filtration Congress 13 to Kick Off with AFS Signature Short Courses

Education has been a key part of the AFS mission since our founding. One hallmark of this mission is our well-known selection of short courses at all our conferences, and as official host, we are bringing this suite of courses to World Filtration Congress 13.

Our half-day short courses, which kick off the Congress on Wednesday, October 5, include 12 options for fundamental filtration and separation instruction. Opportunities to learn about these topics are difficult to find, especially at this level of expertise. Leading scientific experts and industry veterans in filtration and separations are the course instructors, and access to these professionals is uncommon.

Next AFS Webinar: Aspects of Designing Media and Filters for Air Filtration

The American Filtration and Separations Society continues to provide world-class filtration educational programming through our new AFS Learning Center. Taught by filtration industry veterans, AFS Short Courses are well known for their high quality and offer .4 CEU credits for each class. AFS members and attendees to any of our 2020 live webinars will receive a discount.

Our next Short Course is Aspects of Designing Media and Filters for Air Filtration, which will be presented on Thursday, July 30, 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. central time.

This course gives the basis for a better understanding of air filtration theory when applied to filter media and filters, and how other filter requirements, such as environmental regulations, durability and manufacturability have an impact on filter media design. The theoretical principles and practical knowledge gained during this course will allow the participant to be able to properly design and specify filters and filter media for specific applications.
