Hydrac and the Southern African Institute of Welding (SAIW) sign cooperation to offer NDT (Non Destructive Testing) training in Cameroon
David Ekoume, Hydrac director general, says that part of the agreement is Hydrac’s licence to use SAIW training material and authorisation to translate the material into French where necessary.
SAIW executive director, Jim Guild says that, in addition, in light of the fact that Hydrac has a professional working NDT facility, which is capable of magnetic particle, dry penetrate, ultra-sonic and radiographic testing, it has also been accredited as an IIW Authorised Training Body (ATB).
Building African ties
Guild says he is delighted that such close cooperation exists between Hydrac and the SAIW. “The SAIW is determined to continue building ties with its African colleagues and the Hydrac agreement is a boost to this process.”
He added that he was pleased that the agreement involved NDT training. “The Institute is investing heavily in NDT equipment and personnel and we are keen to disseminate our services in this area,” he concluded.
