Sharpening Training Preferences

admin : April 16, 2016 9:41 am : Training Blade Sharpening Business

Professional sharpening business owners and staff who sharpen blades are welcome to participate in our survey about how you trained in the field of sharpening. It’s important to indicate which sector (knives, circular saw blades, industrial knives, beauty shears, clipper blades, mower blades, drill bits, etc.) that you received training. We love to hear from you so write in the trainers you liked and those you don’t recommend. Other sharpeners ask for how and where to get trained. This data will help Sharpeners Report provide great options for all!

We prefer you use the first link, which is an automated survey to calculate results.

  1. Survey link   (write in your email so we can thank you with a free bonus issue of the Sharpeners Report newsletter!)

If you completed a survey, happy to thank you with a bonus issue of The SR newsletter! Please let me know where to email or mail it or your zip for existing subscription record. I didn’t put place for name on survey so it can be anon. but you can email our publishing office and it will get that recorded with a bonus month extention to your subscription!
