MFL Training Course: Get Your API 653 Tank Bottom Certification
Our 40-hour MFL Training Class takes place at our headquarters in Dripping Springs, Texas. As a family-owned company, MFE is proud to offer students hands-on instruction directly from the Duke family. Instructors include Co-Founder Bill Duke who has over 30 years experience in the magnetic flux leakage technique as applied to oil country tubular goods, pipeline inspection, and tank floor inspection.
MFL Training classes are limited to 15 students per session. Each class is divided into smaller rotating groups to ensure a beneficial learning experience. The course rotates between classroom instruction, shop demonstrations, and hands-on training on 28 ft tanks on site. Testing consists of 20 quizzes, one final exam, and a practical test. The curriculum meets the standards set by API 653 Annex G and SNT TC1A.
ITC Infrared Training Courses:
Level 1 – Fundamentals of Thermography Certification
Level II – Practical Thermography Certification
Our Practical Thermography, Level II Certification class is for Level I certified thermography professionals seeking to broaden their knowledge of infrared. This course focuses on strengthening and improving your imaging and temperature measurement skills. Those who successfully complete the course requirements will receive a Level II Infrared Thermography Certification from ITC.
Optical Gas Imaging Certification Training
Students will learn how to set up and operate FLIR optical gas imaging cameras. They will learn how to optimally adjust their cameras for varying environmental conditions to find gas leaks. Students will learn under what environmental conditions gas leaks are most easily found, somewhat easy to find, and difficult to find.
This class will teach students which gases can be found with FLIR optical gas imaging cameras and leak size limitations. Some basic infrared theory and heat transfer concepts will be introduced to build a strong foundation.
Drone Training Courses: Prepare for the FAA Part 107 Exam & Get Advanced Commercial Drone Training
Our two-day course prepares students for the FAA Part 107 exam for commercial drone operators, and provides introductory training to DJI Phantom 4 piloting. Our ﬁve-day course includes all instruction from our two-day course, and then also explores the complexities involved in advanced commercial drone operation for use in industrial environment inspection.
