    The SMA has a yearly conference. I know that some years they include fire assay classes:

    Montana Tech also also offers some training:

    There are also some videos and training offered by others, but I would be careful that you deal with reputable people. There a lot of hocus-pocus being taught...

    book

    Bugbee's book on fire assay is an excellent reference.
    It covers all phases of fire assay from academic as well as practical information.
    The last copy i purchased was from Legend in Sparks Nevada.

    While Bugbee is an excellent text, some assayers prefer Shepard & Dietrich which may have a better section on fluxing:

    Both are excellent assaying textbooks.

    The SMA information is just what I was looking for. I am looking to have more contact with other people in our industry.
