Platts training courses provide thorough, real-world understanding on domestic and global metals markets. They are presented in a live, interactive setting and designed for immediate practical application.

Our market and technical experts will guide you through the production processes, market dynamics, and entire supply chain structure for either steel or aluminum.

An optional one-day hedging workshop is also offered in conjunction with steel training courses. It is an advanced session on purchasing practices involving hedging and price risk management techniques for steel, iron ore, and scrap.

Whether you need a crash course or need to brush up on the complexities of the steel or aluminum markets, you’ve come to the right place. We offer courses around the globe — check the schedule below for one that best suits you.
