Virtual Cylinder Inspection Class
We teach you proper techniques for visually inspecting cylinders, rebuilding valves, and safely operating a fill station. The class is handled virtually so it is helpful to have a camera available along with test cylinders. We prefer to teach in person, for the hands on experience, but sometimes a location or class time can not be accommodated.
A ONE DAY virtual cylinder inspection class where, upon completion, you will be certified to visually inspect cylinders for the next three years. This program includes a visual inspection of all types of cylinders; aluminum, steel, and composite, as well as training in valves, oxygen cleaning and compressors. The class focuses on hands-on training as well as lecture.
Cylinder Training Services will be providing its Cylinder Visual Inspection program using an on-line format. We want to THANK YOU for signing up for our program. We know you will gain knowledge whether you are a seasoned visual inspector, or this is your first visual inspection training.
