19 July marks the one-year anniversary of IMechE Fife NDT.

The Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) established IMechE Fife NDT in 2021 to support Scotland and the North of England in the provision of Non-Destructive Testing, corrosion and coatings training, examinations and Level 3 consultancy services.

IMechE Fife NDT encompasses the strong professional and ethical values of IMechE, reflected in the level of professionalism and high-quality service provided. The experienced, yet friendly, team have consistently supported NDT and coatings professionals attending the school to help them gain the skills required to perform thorough and competent inspections. This has enabled IMechE Fife NDT to become the go-to training school for technicians and organisations such as Glacier, Technip FMC and Oceaneering in a relatively short period of time.

One year on…
