Here's what attendees are saying about this unique event:

  • "I liked that the Technical Exchange gave an opportunity for people who work in materials testing to share new ideas and to exchange ideas of what it takes to successfully operate a materials testing laboratory." 
  • "Every session that I attended was very informative and I can take this information home with me for my everyday use."
  • "As usual it was well organized and informative. We've been accredited for decades, but we always learn something new when we attend. Excellent program!!"
  • "The sessions really helped to break down the intricacies of the accreditation/record keeping requirements – that was extremely helpful."
  • "Having this knowledge also helps me to look at current processes to eliminate possible issue before they become an issue."
  • "The breakout sessions allowed discussion with peers for related backgrounds and different backgrounds."
  • "The presentation included very specific details that can be put into practice – not just a general overview."
