Course Content – Implementation of ASME PCC-2


“What I liked the most about this course was that we were supplied with specific material and details to assist us with specific problems. That is extremely generous of your company and really made me feel like I was more than just a client for a single training session. Being able to create that ‘insider’ feeling over digital channels is difficult and I commend you for it!”

“The online format was really great, it enabled us to attend a course that we would otherwise not be able to afford to. I liked the fact that each article was linked with a case study, it helped to put some of the challenges with a particular repair into focus, and prompted the memory for questions from our own experiences and was a nice focal point for discussions.”

“Every concept was very well explain”
— Supervisor, Norda Stelo, Canada
