Scrap University and CARI have formalized an education agreement, which grants CARI members access to education, training, and certification at Scrap University for a discounted rate of $999.00. During the past two years, Scrap University founders Kate Fraser and Brad Rudover, along with their faculty have developed the industry’s first metal identification certification program. The Certified Scrap Metal Professional (CSMP) program sets the standard for metal identification and upgrading by covering almost every ferrous and non-ferrous grade through a series of online lessons, quizzes, and a final exam. The CSMP program is designed to be beneficial for any role within an organization, from labourers to ownership. It is also intended to complement current in-yard training to accelerate the learning process. Benefits of Scrap University certification include:

Currently, the CSMP program is only available in English. Scrap University has begun work on a French version and expects it to be complete during the second quarter of 2022, with a Spanish language version to come as well.

While metal identification is the foundation of Scrap University teachings, several other programs are being developed to give a comprehensive understanding of the entire scope of operating a scrap yard, including but not limited to, processing, packaging, machinery maintenance, sales, and business philosophy.
