September 4th, 2018

Tuesday September 4th, 2018, will be the1st Technical meeting of the Program Year 2018-2019 for the San Diego Section.

   Mr. John Stewart, the Executive Director of AATA will be the speaker for the September 04, 2018 technical meeting.

Mr. Stewart is an ASNT NDT Level lll in RT, UT and PT and a NAS 410 Level lll in RT, UT, PT, MT, and VT and is an NDT Engineer with AATA.

The American Advanced Technical Academy (AATA) was founded when John decided to dedicate himself fulltime to helping economically disadvantaged veterans struggling with poor job prospects fulfilling careers in his field. Stewart over the course of his twenty year career in NDT has trained technicians for companies such as SpaceX, Goodrich Aerospace and Northrop Grumman, he believed that by addressing inadequate STEM opportunities, one could empower youth and returning military veterans to fill the shortage of NDT professionals in many of California's booming industries. John is a United States Navy Veteran and served as a Navy "Seabee" attached to the Amphibious Battalion 2.

​The title of his talk is "Evaluating the Shortage of the NDT Technicians in the USA". "The presentation covers NDT employment trends and future projections, current and projected future incomes by industry sectors, NDT techniques and U.S. regions."
