Hi all, I guess I should start out with saying I first took both the Gen. Plans and Hydraulics portion of Level 3 in the same day last year. Yeah, big mistake!!! I didn't have much help when it came to studying for this and figured since levels 1 and 2 weren't that hard, I thought I could pass them both in the first try. Anyways, so I took a step back, waited a year and used the Firetech level 3 general plans online study material. Two weeks ago, I took the test and failed again. I thought I was prepared, felt confident, passed the end tests from firetech with 86% both times. Took the test and I didn't pass. So, my question is has anyone taken the individual Continuing Education Courses like the Fundamentals of Standpipe Systems NFPA 14, etc....? I'm wondering if the individual courses provide more information and more sample questions than the study material for the Water Based NICET General Plans? Hopefully this makes sense... what I'm wondering is that are the individual courses more in-depth than the water based NICET study material. Thanks for any help or info on this. Definitely been tough keeping my head up after this last failed attempt.

When making CNC machined parts, mastering tolerances can be challenging. Are general tolerances good enough? When does it make sense to call out for tighter tolerances?

When designing a metal component, engineers have to consider how susceptible certain alloys are to corrosion in the final product’s operating environment. In a recent study by NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers), it was estimated that the direct and indirect costs of corrosion in the United States is approximately 6.2% of the GDP. In 2016, that cost exceeded $1 trillion dollars for the first time. Download Now
With all of the hype around 3D printing, it can be easy to get lost in fascinating, intricate metal parts made with additive manufacturing. These parts, while impressive, are probably dissimilar from many of the parts you currently produce or use. So why invest in metal additive manufacturing? Download Now
