This course is available to experienced PSMA/NOF102-certified inspectors. This course does not re-teach the Inspection Standards, but rather it helps students apply those Standards in various scenarios. The course is divided up into one full day of classroom instruction (no field visits) and the equivalent of eight hours of online self-study education afterwards (included in the course price). While in class, students will select two approved online classes from the PSMA course catalog to complete at home. The certification exam will also be taken online at home (via the online SR1 course). Participants should have at least six years experience inspecting onlot systems through the application of the PSMA/NOF Inspection Standards. Participants must have completed & held a PSMA/NOF-102 certification for at least four years. Your company MUST be a member of PSMA to attend a PSMA certification course.
Registration: $445 (10% discount available for additional registrations). Fee includes course materials, online class registration fees, test fees, and lunch. Online registration closes March 21, 2024. If your company is registering more than one person for this training, the second & subsequent registration fee will receive a 10% discount. That is to say, the first person is $445 and everyone else is at $400. The discount will be automatically applied in your shopping cart during online checkout (register everyone at once — i.e., add 2+ seats to your shopping cart before checking out).
Please Note: The skills of reading and writing English are required prerequisites for training and for all candidates who will take the PSMA/NOF certification exam. PSMA/NOF-certified inspectors must be able to follow written instructions, record field measurements, write answers to questions and draw conclusions. Trainees must be able to complete the training and the exam without reading or writing assistance. Persons with disabilities should notify the PSMA Office in advance of the session, and reasonable accommodations will be made to assist in facilitating your participation.
Be Prepared! All trainees should bring materials to take notes. A calculator will be beneficial. This course does not include field visits. The 103 course requires the student to complete additional classes online from their home/office computer over the internet following the classroom portion of the course.
Certification Test: Students will take a multiple-choice test online from their home/office following the classroom portion of the course. Students must pass with a grade of 70% or better to obtain their certification credential. The certification is valid for two years before re-certification is required.
