New building for Materiaal Metingen Testgroep (NDT Trainingscentre)
Materiaal Metingen Testgroep, part of the MME Group, has taken it’s newly build office in use since 1 October 2013. The new office accommodates the NDT Training Centre. The new building is placed opposite to our existing office in Dintelmond (the Netherlands). The training at the branches in Ridderkerk, Hengelo and Dintelmond are merged into this new building.
With the new building, MME Group has three modern classrooms and three large practice areas at its disposal. The large hall behind the building can be used to inspect large pipes and bends under field conditions, using both radiographic and ultrasonic inspection methods.
MME Group’s NDT Training Centre uses the latest teaching tools. Not only are the textbooks modernised, but there are also digital school boards in the classrooms and we started using e-learning as a teaching method. There has been a successful pilot with e-learning within our different courses. This allows students to practice questions and exams at home on a PC, tablet or smartphone, thus increasing the effectiveness of study counselling.
The Training Centre offers the regular NDT courses for certification level 1 and 2 according to SNT-TC-1A and EN473/ISO9712 in all NDT inspection methods. In addition, there are courses in NDT General, providing a general introduction to non-destructive testing, for inspectors, surveyors and quality service employees and for everyone who is interested in NDT and wants to know more about it.
With access to multiple classrooms in one location, MME Group will be able to cater to the specific training needs of companies more effectively.
