Education Online Courses
We provide you with an engaging learning experience through our online courses. Courses may include flash animations, video of instructors teaching the course in a classroom, video segments from ASM's DVD series relevant to the learning material, and PDF's of instructor Power Points used in the instructor led trainings.
Quizzes at the end of each lesson review the knowledge you have gained. A final exam is provided at the end of the course. You may save a partially complete final exam and return to complete it at a later time. However you may only submit the exam once. A successful passing score of 80% or better on the final exam, and completion of the course survey will allow you to print your own certificate of completion and complete requirements for earning the associated continuing education units for that course.
All online courses require internet access for reading/viewing course content. Both HTML pages and PDF files for each lesson are downloadable and printable for easy offline access.
Please see Refund Policy for Online Courses(includes Self-Studies and DVDs) for more general information concerning online courses.

Location: Anywhere! Steel is the most common and the most important structural material. In order to properly select and apply this basic engineering material, it is necessary to have a fundamental understanding of the structure of steel and how it can be modified to suit its application. The course is designed as a basic introduction to the fundamentals of steel heat treatment and metallurgical processing.
In this self-guided digital course, you will learn the various heat treatment processes involved in modulation properties of steel, effect of carbon on the phases of iron and how it affects the microstructure, classification of steel and tempering of steel.
Selecting a material is one of the most critical design decisions an engineer can make. With the advent of new age materials and evolving technology in manufacturing processes, there is a tremendous opportunity for innovation in design by utilizing the materials in products that provide greater performance at lower cost. Compromises and trade-offs among various design variables are routinely made and factors that are important in one system may be insignificant in another. In this self-guided digital course, students will learn – with the help of rich visuals, narrated animations, demonstration videos, and interactive quizzes – how to evaluate the various factors that impact material selection for component design.
In this innovative self-guided digital course, students will learn – with the help of rich visuals, narrated animations, demonstration videos, and interactive quizzes – how to measure properties such as tensile strength, hardness, and impact resistance and what the tests reveal about material behavior and failure mechanisms, including fracture, creep, and fatigue.
In this self-guided digital course, students will learn – with the help of rich visuals, narrated animations, ASTM test procedures videos, and interactive quizzes – effects of alloying elements on the strength of metals, age hardening, cold working and annealing and the optimal strengthening mechanisms for several groups of alloys.
Anywhere! This course is designed as an extension of the Basics of Heat Treatment course. It discusses advanced concepts in thermal and thermo-chemical surface treatments, such as case hardening, as well as the principles of thermal engineering (furnace design) and process trouble shooting.
Have you ever been handed a failure investigation and were not quite sure all the steps required to complete the investigation? The initial steps of a failure investigation set the direction and, in many cases, ensure a successful investigation or doom it to failure. Here is a chance to learn the steps to organize a failure investigation and ensure success.
Location: Anywhere! This course provides students with a fundamental understanding of the design process necessary to make robust medical devices.
Location: Anywhere! An ideal first course for anyone who needs a working understanding of metals and their applications. It has been designed for those with no previous training in metallurgy, such as technical, laboratory, and sales personnel; engineers from other disciplines; management and administrative staff; and non-technical support staff such as purchasing and receiving agents who order and inspect incoming material.
Location: Anywhere! This course provides essential knowledge to those who do not have a technical background in metallurgical engineering but have a need to understand more about the technical aspects of steel manufacturing, properties and applications.
