“Lube Basics” Seminars
Over the last seven years, FLO has successfully conducted over thirty “Lube Basics” seminars in cities across Ontario and Manitoba, and similar customized seminars for various organizations such as STLE (Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers), Mohawk College and OHMPA (Ontario Hot Mix Producers Association).
Each FLO Components 1-day “Lube Basics” Seminar maintains a balance of theory and practical – time allocation: 50% in class, 50% “hands on” training. Each is designed and presented as an unbiased, 3rd party lubrication training program – we don’t sell to you, we teach you what you need to know.
