Cowley to Provide Accelerated NDT Training in Texas
Dr. Tina Grillot, Cowley College associate vice president for workforce and community education, recently announced that Cowley College has been contracted by Wichita State University’s FirePoint Innovations Center to provide accelerated nondestructive testing (NDT) training at the Corpus Christi Army Depot in Texas.
FirePoint, a partnership between Wichita State and the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command, Aviation and Missile Center (CCDC AvMC), was commissioned to assist in the Modernization of Army Aviation Component Inspection and Re-manufacturing Techniques.
The integration of advanced inspection, measurement, and re-manufacturing technologies is required to enable the aging US Army H-47, H-60, and H-64 aircraft fleets to deliver decisive capabilities to the warfighter.
Cowley College is providing 240 hours of face-to-face training needed to upskill individuals in the NDT Branch at the Special Process Division Corpus Christi Army Depot. This training, along with their on-the-job experience, will provide the participants with the required instruction needed to earn their NDT Level II certifications.
