Nondestructive Testing students attend meeting in Wichita


ANSTStudents in Cowley College’s Nondestructive Testing program recently attended a meeting of the American Society of Nondestructive Testing at Wichita’s Scotch and Sirloin Restaurant.

NDT instructor Joe Clasen took current Cowley students Joe Burge, Wayne Linch, and Jacob Hayes as well as former Cowley students Patrick Metzinger and Carla Friend to the meeting.

“It was good for them to have a chance to meet some prospective future employers,” Clasen said. “We were able to gain exposure and bring back information to share with other students.”

Thanks to the experience, Burge won two years worth of membership to the local chapter (Air Capital Section) of the American Society of Nondestructive Testing.

Jocelyn Langlois, president of the American Society of Nondestructive Testing, gave a speech over the Society as a whole.

Her speech focused on what the society is doing now and introduced some new topics for the local chapter to discuss, such as recruiting and some challenges that the entire society is facing.
