The past 20 years as chief of a company with marketing and sales of many types of electrical, mechanical and optical test equipment to universitys, industrial production Q.C. testing, and many more applications.

The Corona Technology Courses are to educate those who use and need this high voltage experience to do there daily jobs and develop predictive maintenance programs for high voltage equipment. Test equipment manufacturers are solicited and kindly furnish us with literature for course use and your future reference about there test equipment and as available demonstration models of the latest models of test equipment may be used to demonstrate Corona and RFI detection. Any Sales personnel attending the course are not to use class time to market there products
