Chemquest Group Inc., working in conjunction with Fraunhofer IFAM as its North American partner, will be offering the EWF-European Adhesive Bonder (EAB) course, which is set to begin late January 2018.

This course is intended for North American early career professionals interested in European standards training.

EAB Course Information

The course, set to begin with adhesives fundamentals, will also go on to cover bond integrity, with additional focus on what kinds of adhesives are most important to the industry, as well as application-dependent properties. Practical assignments will also be provided.

With a focus on hands-on learning in virtually any product assembly setting, the course curriculum is primarily geared toward students and recent graduates of college-level manufacturing technology programs, according to ChemQuest.
