PSI Tank Class - Full



VCI Visual Cylinder Inspection® Course - This is the core certification course provided by PSI-PCI and in it we teach the regulations and fundamentals of conducting visual inspections of solid wall and composite SCUBA and SCBA cylinders.  The full day course is suited for those new to visual inspection as well as those who have been inspecting without formal training through its wide range of inspection subjects including damage limits, neck cracking and other cylinder issues, plus laws affecting inspectors.  Additionally, this course meets the OSHA and DOT requirements for employee HAZMAT training and attendants completing the course are qualified to conduct HAZMAT training for cylinder handlers. The course also provides an overview of a variety of associated topics including requalification, oxygen cleaning, valve repair, tools, and more.  For more formal training on these topics refer to Specialties below.

It is the only training formally endorsed, referred to and utilized by the cylinder manufacturers; and recognized by USDOT, Compressed Gas Association, NFPA and others. It continues to be the most up to date training available today on this subject.

Previously certified inspectors may attend this full course under the VCIR for re-qualification (see below).  The course is open to anyone 16 years or older and no previous cylinder inspection experience is required.  Participants receive certificate for Visual Cylinder Inspection upon course completion valid for 3 years per Federal training requirements.

VCIR Visual Cylinder Inspection® Refresh Course - The Refresh course provides for previously certified PSI-PCI inspectors, who have exceeded the three year federally mandated recurrent training window to attend the full VCI course described above at a reduced alumni price.  Refresh courses are offered in conjunction with all VCI courses even if not advertised as such.  Contact the instructor hosting the VCI class or PSI-PCI for information. If you are outside your 3 year window for recurrent training this is the course you need to take.  Refresh participants receive certificate for Visual Cylinder Inspection upon course completion valid for 3 years per Federal training requirements.
