Introduction to Practical Metallography

I attended the Introduction to Practical Metallography course led by Richard Brown, which really opened my eyes to the importance of Metallography, and how various techniques can be used to extract necessary data from your sample pieces.  Overall the course was great and Richard is a brilliant tutor.  I hope to attend more courses with M+C to further expand my knowledge.
