Taking Action - Metallurgy


Your Host
Richard Brown - MD
Principal Academic
Call to Arms - Metallurgy Webinar Thursday, 3rd June 2021 at 4.00pm UK Time

Richard is one of the founding members of M&C Educational Training Services Ltd., which is a private organisation providing educational opportunities for the Manufacturing Engineering Industries' workforce through 'Access and Bridging' learning programmes for those working with metals.

Richard is an innovative, experienced and versatile Metallurgist who gained his experience and practical knowledge within the industrial sector.

His passion is metallurgical failure investigation and metallurgical examinations, supporting and providing outcomes for internal and external customers.

Richard has transferred his workplace knowledge and application skills as a Metallurgical Technician and Metallurgist to become an Educationalist.  He strongly believes that to reduce the UK's 'skill gap' of metallurgists, it is paramount to have quality, academic-led educational programmes catering for this sector.

Richard and his M&C team have spent over 2 years developing Metallurgical module programmes, offering student learning experience through on-line, remote studying delivered by academics via webseminars/video conferencing. 

The student is supported through every step of their educational journey by their assigned Lead Academic, their Industrial Mentor and M&C's virtual learning platform aids with their studies.

Available now - Level 3 - Certificate in Metallurgy : Pathways (unregulated qualifications) 


This webinar is the second part of our previous webinar "Call to Arms - Metallurgy".  But if you haven't seen that one don't worry, the "Taking Action - Metallurgy" webinar will provide an insight into what is contained in our 6 Module course "Certificate of Metallurgy - Pathways".


We are also be introducing to you our Introductory Practical Metallography Workshop.

Metallography is the study of the microstructure of all types of metallic alloys.  With the use of specialist equipment, we can determine the chemical and atomic structure and spatial distribution of the constituents, grains, phases, or inclusion in metallic alloys.

This Workshop on the Introductory Practical Metallography (dependent upon Covid-19 restrictions) will be Learner interactive, with one of the days the Learner will bring with them metal sample material from their own workplace to analyse.

On this webinar we will look at our Certificate of Metallurgy course assignments and walk through our learning portal.

We will look at how the Industrial Mentor is pivotal to the student learning experience and run through their Industrial Mentoring Programme.


 During the webinar you can listen to a previous Industrial Mentor Student's own experience.

We will go through the stages of the registration process, what the student and the company provide.


And how we prepare the Students and Industrial Mentor Students for their first semester through our innovative Return to Learn and First Steps 6-week programmes.

Our courses are developed for e-learning (with the exception of the Workshop) which are available to all students, via internet access to study the Metallurgical courses part-time at home and in their workplace, to further their educational understanding on the properties and structure of metals for their career advancement.

This will be an interactive webinar and at the end there is a live Q&A session.

Who should attend:

This webinar is beneficial to those who would like to develop their educational skills by learning the basics around the fundamentals of metals.

Technicians, metallurgists, laboratory technicians, designers and those working with metallurgical processes who are interested in moving up their career ladder.
