“Having little experience with Metalworking Fluids, this course appeared to be a great opportunity to learn about different aspects of these products, without having a lean towards one manufacturer or type of product. The presenters appeared very informed on their topics, and the case studies were a good way to help observe how to investigate different issues tied to metalworking fluids. I also appreciated the electronic copies of the presentations to have as references. I would recommend this course to people in a position such as myself, where one has some familiarity with Metalworking Fluids, but does not have intricate knowledge of them.”  -Mitchell Hunt, John Deere
"I learned more than I thought I would and I have a greater appreciation for formulators and troubleshooters in Metalworking Fluids." - Course Attendee

"I took this course in order to increase my knowledge of the metalworking fluid market. As an additive supplier I wanted to gather insight on the issues my customers face with their own customers. What I received was my expectations and more. I not only learned problem solving for a machine shop but learned more about microbiology and ways to combat it with metalworking fluids. I thought the instructors were very knowledgeable and were able to reach a diverse audience with both basic terminology and also expanding the terminology for those who were advanced. The information presented at this course is so good, I believe I will take the course in the future to help review the topics presented and I am sure I will pick up new ideas.”  -Jason Pesek, Polartech
"The course is taught by industry veterans whose insight and experience is both enlightening and intriguing to anyone with basic knowledge of the field and seeking to further develop their skills." - Course Attendee

"STLE's Metalworking Fluids Management Certificate Course is a keystone for any one involved in the business. The instructors and staff are very informed and helpful." - Tim Harris, Chrysan Industries
"The course was hugely beneficial. Lots of info I didn't know I was missing. Course material will be useful for me and other people in the lab." - Lina Nashif, Lube-Tech
