Leak Testing Level 2

Why attend this course:

This course provides detailed theoretical and practical information on Leak Testing techniques. Candidates will use their own equipment to inspect Equipments for predictive maintenance applications or for specific NDT applications. Relevant Standards, Specifications and Procedures and discussed. Courses can be run at our training centres or on-site at client’s facilities.
