As a diver you know that every year a SCUBA tank needs to be inspected for cracks and defects that creep in over time. Have you ever wondered how that happens? How can you see down into the bottom of a SCUBA tank? What does a defect even look like?

Find out by taking the PCI Visual Cylinder Inspector course with MDS. In an evening you'll explore the mysteries of the SCUBA tank and get hands-on practice inspecting the tanks you use every time you dive.
