CITI, the corona inspection training institute was established in the USA to teach, train and educate predictive maintenance engineers and provide them with new concepts and methods of using UV inspection to detect and identify faults before they turn into major failures.
CITI is an independent entity, sponsored by Ofil, operating throughout North America, offering education to whomever wishes to gain education, be up to date, and become a certified UViGrapher.

“…It is amazing that a single physical phenomenon can be the trigger of so many modes of degradation – all at once…” writes Professor Rafi S. Gorur of Arizona State University in the INMR publication (Issue 87 Quarter One 2010 Volume 18 Number 1 Page 18).
In his article “Corona: Silent But Deadliest Enemy for Composite Insulation”, Prof. Gorur depicts the factors and processes caused by corona that lead to deterioration of insulation material. The full article is available at the INMR article archive.
These are rather new titles for certified trained engineers that diagnose systems, provide prognosis and assist utilities maintain their assets effectively by using UV and IR cameras, respectfully.
At times when diplomas are necessary and smart workers are appreciated, more and more people seek opportunities to promote their status, make a change, and become professionals. Moreover, at times when researches about corona and its effect on reliability are conducted throughout the world by HV laboratories, research institute, academies, utilities etc., there is a greater need for a school such as CITI that can provide the down-to-earth practical sifted information.
