Lewistown, Pa., April 16, 2012 — GE's Inspection Technologies product line, a GE Measurement & Control business, announced the GE Inspection Academy, a global training and knowledge-sharing program for GE customers and employees.
The GE Inspection Academy provides access to the latest non-destructive technologies as well as high-quality training in the application of a wide range of NDT modalities to help customers improve their probability of detection, boost productivity, establish lifelong career skills and build confidence for better decision making.
Classroom training is available in the newly created inspection academy headquarters in Lewistown, Pa. Additional classroom and workshop facilities are being established around the globe in existing GE application centers and in select partner and academic institutions. Additionally, online training resources are available immediately, with optional hands-on training provided at designated locations.
The GE Inspection Academy will offer courses in all the major NDT modalities, including ultrasonics, radiography, eddy current and remote visual inspection. The GE Inspection Academy's initial focus will be on Level I and Level II certification to accepted accreditations.
GE engineering teams and application experts, who have been largely responsible for the development of relevant products and equipment, will lead many of these training sessions. Enhanced curriculum introducing additional advanced technologies will be introduced in the near future.
