When one of the world’s leading suppliers to the global energy sector needed technical training, it turned to AIS Training for help.

The Stowen Group provides inspection, maintenance and repair services for some of the world’s largest oil and gas and clean energy projects. Non-destructive testing (NDT) is a key area of expertise and the Stowen Group invests heavily in regular training for its personnel.

AIS Training was the number one destination for Stowen Group’s technical director Kieron Ford when he needed to refresh his NDT skills.

Kieron Ford said: “In my role, I’m responsible for ensuring projects are completed to the highest possible technical standards. As well as problem solving, this includes carrying out on-site inspections which means I need to stay on top of the very latest industry standards and methods.  AIS Training was the obvious choice when I needed refresher training. The facilities and instructors are exceptional and the onsite hotel is really handy as it’s just around the corner from the course. I completed an industry-approved ultrasonic testing qualification with AIS Training which gives a thorough introduction to the ultra-sonic testing of plates and welded joints over 5-days. Having this certification gives me the knowledge and skills to help my team and clients come up with the very best technical solutions on NDT projects. I recommend AIS Training to others regularly.”
