Great success for TWI's first PCN accredited Phased Array course




The addition of PCN certification following the global success of CSWIP certified courses has been well received and attracted candidates from the UK, mainland Europe and Australia.

Customers' feedback from recent courses highlighted the benefits of being offered a choice of equipment: AGR, Olympus or Harfang, coupled with training resources that both challenged and honed their skills of weld inspection. Lecturers readily accommodate multi-equipment practical sessions, thus enabling candidates to gain confidence and competence on the equipment they will subsequently come to use in their daily business.

As well as good quality inspection equipment and training, an equally important resource is accurate training and exam samples. TWI manufactures these internally thus ensuring good quality control. In recent months specifically to meet our PCN commitment, new batches of training and exam samples have been fabricated solely by Gerald (Geordie) Dixon an accomplished craftsman in weld defect representation. TWI Training & Examination Services is staffed by team players, many of whom are working behind the scenes ensuring that both lecturers and candidates are supported before and throughout the courses.

Quotes from recent candidates:

'Thanks from Integrity NDT to the team at TWI for a highly instructive phased array course; the lecturer integrated the requirements of individuals using different systems seamlessly into the syllabus of the course'.

'A friendly and professional atmosphere, well done.'

'Excellent facilities, choice of equipment, plus excellent variety of samples, and individual work stations'.

'Valuable experience gained on the equipment to be used in the company'.

'Friendly helpful staff always willing to offer help and guidance whether regarding course and/or administrative enquiries'.
