Decoding Failures Training Course

Imagine being able to look at a crack and determine the cause.
With Steel Image’s hands-on training, you will.
Decoding Failures is a one-day, hands-on course that can be brought to your team at your facility.

Improve your team’s abilities to:


Visually recognize the different types of mechanical cracks


Interpret features including crack initiation, growth path, material deficiencies and nature of loading


Apply this to understand why a part broke and prevent repeat failures

“I’ve taken many industrial courses dealing with failure analysis, but none of them have ever come close to this one.”
— Mark Gharghoury, Material Specialist

“My favourite part of the day was actually looking at failures, looking at the signs to show what type of failure it was.”
— Cody Boutilier, Mechanical Engineer

Determining the precise cause of failure is critical.
Hands-on learning over actual broken parts provides real value for anyone who deals with component failures through reliability, design, quality or inspection.
