Heat Treaters

Tips for Entry

Find a commercial heat-treating company near you and set up an information interview with a heat treater to learn more about the job.

Spend time on the Web sites of industry associations, such as ASM International and the Metal Treating Institute, to access industry news and information about upcoming workshops and events.

Take as many classes as possible in math, computers, and shop. They will provide a solid background for work in the heat treating field.
