- Certification workshops are kept to a maximum of 3 students (depending on the method) in order that each student may receive individual instruction and assistance with particular problem areas.
- We have a wide range of test pieces with realistic defects for each test method and students are encouraged to also bring their own test pieces for their own test applications and to participate in group discussions and problem-solving.
