In this Wood Adhesion Science and Technology course, you'll receive an introduction to adhesion science and technology with an introduction to basic chemical concepts, surface chemistry, polymer science, polymer analysis, and also to some commercially significant wood adhesives and topics specific to those adhesives.
Wood science and technology experts, selected from top universities, government research labs and industry, teach the course's seven modules.
The modules are integrated online and build upon each other to provide a logical progression as participants transfer newly-acquired skills to the workplace. Modules are self-paced and can be started at any time to help you balance your career and other responsibilities.
Each module includes five to 10 hours of instruction. Participants who receive a 70-percent or above on the course final exam will receive a Certificate of Completion.
