Congratulations to Lee who has successfully passed his Level 2 in Ultrasonic Immersion testing! Lee joined Pudsey Test back in 2013 and has been working alongside our Level 2 and Level 3 inspectors gaining valuable on the job experience whilst working towards his level 2. The immersion testing of bar and tube is highly specialised and not for the faint hearted – so well done Lee.
