We offer a full range of courses in welding inspection, welding economics, the major Nondestructive Testing Methods and other related subjects. Each course is scheduled throughout the year as our calendar changes. All methods are taught under the direction of an experienced Senior Certified Welding Inspector, Certified Welding Supervisor, Certified Welding Educator and ASNT Level III. Many programs we offer can be conducted at your location and customized to your specific needs or customer requirements.
All of our courses follow the recommended Body of Knowledge as published by AWS as well as Recommended Practice SNT-TC-1A and ASNT Standard CP-105; Topical Outlines for Qualification of Nondestructive Testing Personnel as published by ASNT.
Each student receives their own study materials and references. Our classroom and shop facility provide adequate space for up to 25 students. This allows us to keep classes relatively small, as well as for the opportunity for one-on-one training with our students.
