My training in the field of inspection has been extensive. Combining my work ethic with a vast library of literature has allowed me to take my knowledge of welding and manufacturing to unlimited bounds. This gives me the ability to navigate any code book and apply its standards to real time production. As well as the ability to work with production/manufacturer to resolve any short comings in the manufacturing process has, and will always be a strength I posses.
