Our Standard Test Piece is a comprehensive training and information course, designed to help the user ensure the operational reliability and performance of X-Ray machines, using STP devices from all manufacturers. STPs are designed to ensure the correct functioning of X-Ray machines. Allowing the operator to rectify any issues, before creating an adverse affect on security.

Quadratica UK's STP educational course will familiarise new and experienced X-Ray operators with a comprehensive overview of routine X-Ray machine testing.

It is a legal obligation within the EU to regularly test security X-Ray screening equipment for image quality. A standard for X-Ray penetration and image resolution, the Standard Test Piece (STP) was set by the Department of Environment, Transport and the Regions (DETR) and the European Civil Aviation Conference to replace the Combined Test piece (CTP).

Affordable, Convenient, High Quality Training

At Quadratica UK we are continually looking for ways to provide our customers with the best functionality in the most economic format. Training can be expensive and the quality of instruction can vary from trainer to trainer. Our online training courses deliver high quality training every time. Scheduling training for a large work force no longer requires the hire of training rooms or taking staff off the floor. Our courses are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so training can be scheduled around staff availability and convenience.

To keep our clients’ training overheads down, we have priced our courses by the unit – if only 2 people require training, our clients only pay for 2 units, whereas a certified instructor will charge the same amount whether they are training 2 or 20 people.

We provide training managers with the best possible tools to educate their security staff by continually developing groundbreaking technologies. Our products are designed with a strong focus on our customers’ ever evolving needs and the shifting landscapes of the security industry.
