The Shot Peening and
Blast Cleaning Annual Workshops
The Annual Shot Peening and Blast Cleaning Workshop is two or three days of intensive instruction on all aspects of the shot peening and blast cleaning industry. Product design engineers, machine operators, foremen, supervisors, maintenance and quality engineers all benefit from the workshop. Workshops are offered annually in the USA and around the world.
(Level 1, 2, 3 and Flapper Workshop Exams and Certificates)
The Shot Peening Achievement Program is presented by Electronics Incorporated to introduce shot peening fundamentals and recognize individual professional development. An achievement certificate is awarded to those individuals who attend the Shot Peening Workshop and demonstrate an understanding of the fundamentals of shot peening by completing and passing the examination held in conjunction with the workshop. Three levels of achievement are offered.
On-Site Training and Certification
The Shot Peening and Flapper Peening Technologist Certification Programs, conducted on the customer's premises, include two days of classroom instruction and shop practice. Our on-site training covers the basics of the Shot Peening Achievement Program (see above) as well as on site shop training and facilities evaluation. The instructors will specifically review an organization's ability to meet any particular procedure or specification with special emphasis on equipment capability. Certificates of Proficiency are awarded to those demonstrating shop practice competence and passing a written examination.
FAA Approved Inspectors Training
Electronics Inc. (EI) training is approved by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) as meeting training requirements for FAA employees who audit shot peening processes. EI training programs, including the annual Shot Peening / Blast Cleaning Workshop and a specialized two-day on-site program of classroom instruction and shop proficiency demonstrations, developed specifically for FAA inspectors are FAA approved. Attendees that pass the review and competency test at the end of the program will receive credit toward their yearly FAA training requirement.
PRI (Performance Review Institute) Partner in Education
Electronics Incorporated is a PRI (Performance Review Institute, the SAE organization that conducts Nadcap audits) Partner in Education. This agreement solidifies a long and successful relationship between the two organizations that began when the EI staff trained Nadcap/PRI auditors in shot peening processes. Future outcomes of the relationship will be the hosting of educational seminars and audit preparation training for Nadcap suppliers, the sharing of Nadcap information in EI's Shot Peener magazine, and ongoing training and workshops for PRI staff.
