The scope

Level 1 Tank Test Training (2 days)
This two-day course consists of one day theory and one day of practical training and caters for condition monitoring professionals and maintenance planners who utilise the SDT270 TankTest kit.

The training provides the learner and operator with an understanding of the equipment and how to interpret the data collected. The acoustic testing of underground tanks is proven to be an effective and reliable method of detecting leaks in petrochemical applications and therefore preventing safety and environmental risks.

Level 2 Tank Test Training (2 days)
Two days of practical training offer a deeper understanding of the methodology surrounding this method of testing.
