Robert Sheaf was awarded Emeritus Certification status during the recent IFPS 2020 Spring Meeting. Mr. Sheaf is the fourth recipient of an IFPS Emeritus Certification, awarded for his vital contributions to IFPS Certification Programs.
The IFPS grants Emeritus status to someone who is no longer employed in the industry but still makes a contribution. That person is granted permission to retain their certification as an honorary title for the rest of their life.
“Bob Sheaf has been involved with fluid power for 45-plus years and has given hours beyond measure to the IFPS and other industry organizations. He is an outstanding troubleshooter and instructor,” said Jeff Kenney, 2020 IFPS President. Bob served as IFPS president, certification committee chair, and a director-at-large. He is currently an IFPS Honorary Director.
A candidate for IFPS Emeritus Certification must meet specific requirements, including nominations by at least three IFPS members in good standing, at least one of whom must be a current or past board member. The candidate must maintain continuous IFPS certification for at least 20 years.
