Course registration also includes the full course book with presentation slides as well as instructor notes, a 50-question exam to be conducted at the conclusion of the course, and three metalworking fluids case studies on the final day of the course. Course books can be provided in either printed or digital format.   There will also be a separate holding of STLE’s Certified Metalworking Fluids Specialist (CMFS) exam. The CMFS exam will be conducted on Thursday afternoon, Feb. 23. This exam is not included in the course registration and requires separate registration, which can be completed on the certification registration form

The Metalworking Fluid Management Course does not prepare attendees to take the CMFS Exam!
The exam requires much more in-depth knowledge of metalworking fluids topics than the instructors have time to cover in the two and a half-day course, and therefore the exam is only recommended to those with an extensive experience in metalworking fluids management and applications.
