NTTC’s Cargo Tank Test & Inspection Workshops are returning to in-person offerings, in addition to separate virtual workshops. In-person and virtual workshops are led by FMCSA instructors or by industry and hazmat specialist Art Fleener. Regardless of which format you choose, all workshops are designed to help cargo tank repair technicians, testers, and inspectors comply with current regulations – whether as a bulk carrier or as a commercial repair facility.

  • Special test/inspection conditions
  • External visual inspections
  • Internal visual inspections
  • Pressure tests
  •  Leakage tests
  • Thickness tests
