Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) January 9, 2007
In Orlando, Florida, on March 26-27, 2007, the American Filtration and Separations Society will kickoff its 20th Annual Conference with 10 short courses. These courses give attendees the opportunity to enhance their technical expertise and get up close to experts in filtration and separation. All the courses attendees are awarded CEU credit.
What do course attendees say:
"Outstanding course. Very appropriate combining the theoretical and practicle aspects. Pace was excellent, and instructors allowed ample time for discussion and questions. the interaction was great and the information valuable. Learning was achieved. Recommend this class for the novice and the experienced, because of the interaction and learning dynamic with experienced and knowledgeable instructors." Joe Israel, Donaldson Company
"I found the short course very beneficial. There were filter manufacturers, sales representatives, and end users in the class, so different perspectives were explored. The class was small enough that individual needs could be addressed. I would recommend the course to others." Nathan Capps, Beam Global Spirits & Wine
