AFS Announces First Class of AFS Certified Professionals

The first group of filtration professionals has earned the AFS Certified Professional (AFSCP) designation, having taken all required courses, met professional criteria and passed the AFSCP exam.

Every day I use the confidence and knowledge I gained by taking these classes and passing the exam,” said Meagan Robinson, Key Accounts Manager for SBS – IBR Laboratories. “This certification immediately lets people know that they can trust in my filtration knowledge.”

“I took the classes and the exam to get a better understanding of filtration techniques, technologies and applications, and I am happy to say that is exactly what I got,” said Kip Vangsgard, Product Management Leader for Mativ.  “I encourage companies to send their employees to pursue this certification and build a solid foundation of filtration knowledge.”
