Lavender International is a global brand for Non-destructive Testing (NDT) Training, Examination and Consultancy Services.
Established in Sheffield, UK in 1976, we have developed a strong reputation amongst our varied and loyal customer base. Our highly experienced technical staff are supported by a knowledgeable business services department who work with our customers to ensure that the most appropriate course is followed.
We are accredited by major NDT organisations, to provide Training and Examinations suitable for internationally recognised central and employer based certification schemes. We provide Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 programmes for PCN (BS En ISO 9712:2012), AINDT (ISO9712 AS3998), EN419, NAS410 and SNT-TC-1A employer based programmes.
We run training programmes from our headquarters in Penistone and at the Advanced Manufacturing Park in Sheffield, UK. We have offices in Houston, Texas USA and support programmes in Greece, South Africa, Canada and the UK. We also offer Accelerated Work Experience Programmes for candidates who need the necessary work experience for certification. We are also working in collaboration with UK colleges to support the delivery of two types of NDT Apprenticeships: the NDT Operator and the NDT Technician.
Lavender International has been an Employee Owned Business since 2015 and this means that every single one of us here at Lavenders is a co-owner and is equally motivated to safeguard the future of the organisation, by ensuring that the students we train have the best experience, the companies we work with have optimum support and that everything we do is delivered by quality staff who actually own the company. We pride ourselves on providing a quality service that allows for a flexible approach that clients feel confident using; highlighting our core values – Quality, Flexibility and Trust. We believe that the service we provide is unique and is often referred to as ‘The Lavender Way’.
As an innovative and forward thinking company, we are investing considerably in technical equipment and staff resources to ensure that the Lavender experience continues to be of the highest quality.
