Our large classroom offers not only a comfortable learning environment for our trainees it also allows for the use of full size visual aids.
Once we have discussed the ASTM standard or AAMA specification. SITC utilizes our full size wall mock ups for conducting hands on training. SITC will demonstrate the ASTM or AAMA test. Once demonstrated SITC will invite our trainees to conduct the test from start to finish.
Part of SITC’s training curriculum is teaching the trainees how to properly utilize the calibration equipment.
Also we assist our trainees in assembling an internal auditing system of equipment calibration.
Calibration requirements for the equipment utilized during testing are very clear in the ASTM standards and are an integral part of conducting ASTM water spray testing or ASTM air infiltration testing.
