Engineer, Oil & Gas Management Sdn Bhd First of all, I love the colourful tabs that were distributed to participants. They are really handy and more importantly useful. The IDC Trainers and staffs are really caring and helpful in all aspects. Appreciate the arrangement by IDC pertaining to course exam arrangement, accommodation and always there for participants when there are needs. Will definitely recommend the Technical Training courses to others in Singapore.

The course is right fitted to my job that makes me fully understand/learn the code and standard to look at; specially for the reports of the inspector after the tanks are inspected. I'm now more familiar with ASME code. IDC has good courses to learn and gain knowledge for engineers and technician.
