COMPOSITE CYLINDER COURSE
This course has been developed as a result of requests from Test Centres for further training. Centres are being approached by industry to extend the type of cylinders that they are able to inspect and test.
The course is aimed at IDEST test centre staff, who are already qualified as test centre technicians; able to inspect and test steel and aluminium cylinders. The training provides sufficient knowledge to allow the technicians to inspect and test composite cylinders under EN ISO 11623:2002
