Good afternoon. I would like to introduce myself. I am Kathy Moore, QCM of the welding program for Joe Moore & Company in Raleigh, NC. We currently hold one R-Certificate ssued by the National Board and two ASME Certificates (S&U). I had the pleasure of attending a class that The State of North Carolina Dept of Labor was having for their boiler inspectors. Lee Bird was the instructor. It was the consensus of all I talked with that Lee is a very compelling instructor. We held everyone’s attention as well as managed to give the same instrusion to many people with diversified education and back grounds. I did not see one person get bored or lose their focus. Great job to Lee Bird and Jason!
