Become a PSI-PCI Trained Visual Cylinder Inspector
Since 1983, focusing on our core business, PSI-PCI, Inc. offers the most trusted, comprehensive, recognized and standards meeting technical training in the world today for inspectors of SCUBA, SCBA and certain other high-pressure cylinders.
Technicians who frequently work with cylinders and educators who train people to use these cylinders should receive this formal training. PSI-PCI classes are open to all persons age 18 and older.
This full day cylinder training course for inspections will teach individuals about cylinders and their make up. They will learn to identify unsafe cylinders, understand safe policies for filling cylinders and steps to qualify a cylinder for continued service. Our 18-step protocol is the first and only one of its kind and our program has stood the test of the US Courts as the authoritative process! PSI-PCI provides full support for the people we train with inspection tools and technical assistance.
Today the PSI-PCI program is still the only visual inspection training program in the US formally endorsed, utilized and referred to by the cylinder manufacturers and recognized by the US Dept. of Transportation, Compressed Gas Association (CGA), NFPA and others. Thousands of inspectors have received this specialized formal, function specific training from PSI-PCI. Our specialty programs stand alone to meet the Federal requirements for the necessary formal, function specific training for those subjects which include Oxygen Cylinder Cleaning Technician, Valve Repair Technician and Eddy Current Technician.
As the gold standard, others have continued to try to imitate PSI-PCI and our programs, but none can match them! There is NO equivalent to PSI-PCI or our training! Cylinder (or "tank" as it's typically referred to in the industry) inspection training is our core business. It is our focus. No one else can provide you the level of experience in professional training, consultation, inspection tools, and full inspection support that PSI-PCI does. That is why we do not offer "cross-overs". The professional choice is clear-- PSI-PCI is your best source for Visual Cylinder Inspection® training. And we don't just say it, we can prove it!

In addition to in person courses we now also offer the PSI-PCI courses via Interactive Virtual Training (IVT) which is live training with an instructor via web meeting platforms. For more information on taking the course live via IVT click HERE. Taking the training virtually requires the attendee to provide their own tools for the hands on portion. Basic hand tools, an internal inspection light and two cylinders at a minimum. Some instructors provide "loaners", others offer training and tools packages. The course description should specify and you can work directly with the independent affiliate instructor hosting the class to confirm.
PSI-PCI, Inc. is fully dedicated to the goal of zero explosions of high pressure cylinders. Our trained inspectors are recognized around the world as the leaders in reaching that goal!
