Summertime Educational Opportunities

ACerS is offering several new and convenient education and training opportunities in the months ahead:

Webinar:

  • Test Standards and Specifications for the Global Advanced Ceramics Market:
  • Status, Needs and Challenges – Aug. 12, 2009, 1:00-2:30 p.m. EST
    Stephen T. Gonczy will lead this 90-minute ceramic materials “webinar” that
    will cover current test standards for advanced ceramics, ASTM C28
    Committee activities and the use of advanced ceramic test standards.
    Testing and research professionals, product developers, program
    managers and marketing executives will benefit from participating in
    this practical and interactive discussion on the need for new standards
    for advanced ceramics applications. Gonczy is president and research
    director of Gateway Materials Technology, Mount Prospect, Ill.

    Costs for the webinar are $95 per person for ACerS members ($145 for
    nonmembers). Site access participation, allowing unlimited viewers at
    one location is $225 for members ($325 for nonmembers). See webseminars web page for more information.
