In keeping with its continued efforts to promote diversity and offer opportunities to traditionally underrepresented groups in STEM, the American Advanced Technical Academy (AATA) is presenting the first ever all-women NDT training course this July for those wishing to enter the NDT profession.

The 10-week course is free for qualifying students and includes classroom and hands-on instruction in all the major NDT techniques. Twelve women have already signed up to attend. However, AATA needs help to raise the funds necessary to cover their costs as well as provide additional funding to open the door for more attendees.

To help raise the funds, AATA is holding a fundraiser reception on July 5 at Cal State Los Angeles (CSULA). The event will be held from 4-8 p.m. and the cost is $75 for regular admission. It is free for students.

In addition to admission costs, AATA is offering advertising and sponsorship opportunities for organizations and individuals looking to go above and beyond. The deadline for inclusion is June 15, 2018.
