On Site Training

Giglio Freeman Associates engineers will come on site to train your personnel on the uses of a degaussing machine and/or Gauss meter.  

  • Where to place your Gauss meter to obtain a proper measurement is vital if you are to achieve your goal.
  • Knowing where to place your cable is imperative if you want it to be effective.
  • What type of current (AC vs DC) and how much to apply is the difference between success and failure.

Experience providing this knowledge to large pipeline companies, GFAs will bring to your facility or job site, unparalleled expertise to ensure your personnel can accomplish their goals.

Hands on training is the only way to know that everyone is provided the same information.  With different skill sets, the more knowledge you deliver to your critical personnel, the faster they can produce the results you want.  Each training session comes with 3 training manuals included (additional manuals are available for a nominal fee).
