About the Speaker:
BIO – JAMES BENNETT, Performance Review Institute, USA
Jim joined the Performance Review Institute in 2004 following a 13year career with Rolls-Royce plc, England. His Engineering career began at Rolls-Royce as a fully qualified machinist on Aerospace components which included critical hardware such as Turbine Discs. Technical Engineering experience was obtained working for the (at that time) External Laboratory – Components, whose responsibility was to control the supplier base performing special processes. As a technician Jim performed laboratory duties including metallographic evaluation on components such as Fasteners and in sync with those duties obtained his Bachelor’s Degree in Materials Engineering.
Following a year or two as the Fastener Specialist performing Special Process audits, Jim was given the opportunity to work with the NDT Group where he obtained his level 3 certifications for PT, MT and RT. Jim performed numerous NDT audits globally throughout the Supplier base. It was this involvement that led to Jim being part of the team responsible for the implementation of the Rolls-Royce Nadcap mandate for NDT Suppliers (initial mandate roll out) and to become a Subscribing Voting Member within the Nadcap NDT Task Group for Rolls-Royce plc.
At PRI, Jim’s duties include the position of Staff Engineer for the NDT Group (one of four NDT Staff Engineers) and managing the PRI Professional Development Department.
