October 25, 2021

Scrap University, a metals identification training program with offices based in British Columbia, has formalized an education agreement with the Washington-based Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI). According to the agreement, ISRI members can have access to Scrap University education, training and certification for discounted rates in excess of 25 percent.

The educational program offers a metal identification certification program. According to Scrap University, its Certified Scrap Metal Professional (CSMP) program covers the basics on most ferrous and nonferrous grades and offers users a series of online lessons, quizzes and a final exam. The program is designed to educate any role within an organization from laborer-level positions to executive-level positions. Scrap University says it designed the program to complement in-yard training.

According to a news release from Scrap University, the metals identification training program is only available in English, but there are plans to release a Spanish version of the course in the first quarter of 2022.
