Line Sweep Interpretation eLearning Course

This eLearning course is offered at no charge.
This on-line course provides training on how to interpret Line Sweep data and how to use Handheld Software Tools and Master Software Tools.  It includes instruction on important technical terms, how a Line Sweep measurement is made, what reflections look like and how to determine if they are in spec or not.  In many situations, people responsible for interpreting these measurements may not have a technical background.  The training material is presented so that students without a technical background can gain an understanding of the concepts and of how to properly interpret the measurements that may be submitted to them by field personnel.   This eLearning course is also appropriate for people with a technical background who want to gain a better understanding of interpreting line sweep traces.  THIS IS NOT A CERTIFICATION COURSE.
Online quizzes and a demo of Handheld Software Tools and Master Software Tools are included.  The course is narrated in English.
