Approaching 26 Years as the Worldwide Leader in cylinder
failures each year demonstrate the need for technical cylinder inspector
training. In 1999 there were eleven
cylinder failures, in 1998 there were ten cylinder failures.
Each of these catastrophic failures was preventable by a quality visual
inspection with proper formal training at our VCI Workshop.
PSI, Inc. is the only
full service corporation of its kind in the world. We provide fully supported
formal/hands-on training for visual inspectors of SCUBA and SCBA cylinders and
carry a full line of specialized inspection tools.
Our corporation is a leader with informational support to the compressed
gas industry. DOT, OSHA, CGA
members and manufacturers attend and refer persons to our training program.
Compressor manufacturers Bauer and Compair/Mako as well as hydro retest
equipment manufacturers, Galiso, Inc. and Hydro Test Products, Inc. refer
persons to PSI for tools, information and training.
Further, the Federal National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)
requires its SCUBA cylinders to be inspected by a PSI trained inspector.
Other government agencies, including the U.S. Secret Service and U.S.
Navy have PSI Inc. affiliated inspectors using our training format to provide
in-house visual cylinder inspector training.
PSI publishes the fifth edition of the textbook, "Inspecting Cylinders" as well as the support document entitled "Hazmat Training Instructor Guide" which is specifically tailored to meet DOT requirements for Hazmat Training of Cylinder Handlers and Fill Station Operators in the compressed air service.
