Over the past few months, our Deputy Chief Examiner and Senior Tutor Craig Hobson, has been transitioning into an exciting new role at our Advanced Manufacturing Park facility in Rotherham.
The role will involve managing the day to day running of the Ultrasonics department, acting as a customer liaison officer, handling the marking of examinations, as well as supporting our UT tutors and examiners with processing folders. Craig will act as a conduit between the bookings and certification department at Penistone to ensure our training courses continue to run smoothly.
Craig has over 40 years experience working in a range of industries including automotive, oil & gas, nuclear and medical covering a variety of roles including inspecting, auditing and leading a team of NDT technicians. This allows him the ability to empathise with students and understand the situation they are going through when they come to undertake their training and exams.
“Having worked in a training, examination and certification environment for a number of years means I have interacted with and supported students across a multitude of backgrounds with their training and certification needs”, Craig said.
This change will allow for greater support to students studying onsite at the time with any enquiries they may have, particularly if it is in relation to their examination or certification given Craig’s in-depth knowledge of the PCN certification scheme.
Since the transition, we have received great feedback from our students,
At Lavender International our approach is to create a friendly, relaxed and supportive atmosphere to help reduce student concerns when sitting an exam to ensure the students we train have the best experience. For more information regarding our Ultrasonic Testing courses click here.
