This course will provide you with a high-level overview on Metallography. This course is a complete hands-on training allowing you to perform various test methods yourself. Candidate will receive individual instructions while the tests are being carried out. Candidate will be allowed to journal the tests.

The course is designed to:

- Providing knowledge of various ASTM Standards and requirements of such standards. Letting students know of various requirements of tests under each standard so that they become aware of specification requirements.

- Imparting training to conduct various physical tests such as Tensile, 0.2% Proof Stress, Hardness, Charpy Impact, Bend, Flattening, Microexamination and Macroetch tests, including classes for preparation of various Physical test Specimen for Tensile, Impact test so on and so forth.

- In-depth exposure to various methods of Chemical Analysis. Please note that learning of Chemical Analysis, particularly by WET method, will be a separate program suitable for your Chemist. Most engineers only need to be aware of various methods, how they are performed and limitations of various methods.

- Additional courses for Non Destructive and Hydraulic Pressure Testing. Upon special cases we can arrange for training to ASNT level I and II as well.

Please note that this program will cover just an introduction to various tests methods and may not make a student perfect in all areas. This will definitely improve his overall knowledge and make him aware of different aspects of testing.

All the training will be hands on training and you get all instructions while tests are being carried out. One can make his own notes during this procedures.

30 days

Candidate should have a minimum of High-school level education. We prefer candidates if they have Diploma Engg. / Degree in Science.

US $5000 per person or Rs. 75,000 per person. This class will be conducted when there are a minimum of 4 students per batch.

Candidates should pay all fees in advance of 2 weeks before beginning of the course. All fees are non-refundable and non-transferable. Failure to show up for the course will result in forfeiture of the fees for that examination or course. If an examination application is received and the applicant is found to be unqualified to take the examination, a refund will be issued less an administrative fee of Rs.500 per applicant.

No refunds will be made for applicants who require certification once again. All requests for transfers or cancellations must be submitted in writing to TCR Insitute for Materials Technology and be signed by the person registered for the examination or course. A signed fax transmittal is acceptable.

Candidates are encouraged to bring an electronic calculator. Programmable calculators are permitted as long as it does not have an alphanumeric keyboard. No other books, paper, or charts will be allowed.

Candidates are permitted to use a translation dictionary. No electronic dictionaries will be allowed.

Candidates should plan to arrive at the examination site at least 30 minutes prior to the scheduled examinations. No one will be admitted after an examination has started.

Candidates will receive results immediately after the exam at the end of the training. For certification related training courses, candidates will receive their certificates 1-2 week after the exam. Candidates who fail to achieve a passing score will require appearing for the exam again
